About-

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Like the neighbor in the parable of the Good Samaritan, what if the help needed in the story is the learning of English? Would you give? Empowering English Language Learners is a book that takes you to experience what happens when the Christian value of being a ‘neighbor’ is embraced in teaching English to the non-English speakers in different settings. Lively and practical!”

—Seong Hyun Park, Dean of Boston Campus and Assistant Professor of Old Testament, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary



“Empowering ELLs is a very important topic for all teachers. Many strategies for successfully empowering ELLs have been made by experienced and effective teachers and administrators in secular and Christian settings to students of all age levels. I highly recommend this book as an indispensable resource for all.”

—Aída Besançon Spencer, Senior Professor of New Testament, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
