This list of resources was compiled by participants in the collegial circle: Advocating for English Language Learners based on a book written by Diane Staehr-Fenner and moderated by Mid-West RBERN. One of the best ways to advocate for your ELLs is to help fellow students, colleagues, and school administration understand what it feels like to be an ELL. Creating a community wide sense of empathy helps create a sense of shared responsibility. These resources are to aid you in your advocacy work.
