- Academic Language for English Language Learners and Struggling Readers
by Yvonne S. Freeman, David E. Freeman - Many middle school and high school students are recent immigrants or long-term English language learners who struggle with the academic language needed to read content-area textbooks and write papers for their classes. Likewise, many native speakers of English find content-area classes a challenge. Secondary teachers have little time to teach academic reading and writing skills because they must cover a great deal of content in their social studies, science, math, or language arts classes

- Closing Achievement Gaps: Improving Educational Outcomes for Hispanic Children
This report focuses on two overlapping areas to address the undereducation of Latino students: English learners’ acquisition of English and Latino middle school students’ preparation for post-secondary education. To explore these areas in depth, the authors treat them as separate focus areas. The authors contend that these focus areas provide a foundation for high academic achievement and gateway to postsecondary education and beyond, respectively. The report proffers policy recommendations that include—but are not limited to—these two areas. It concludes by affirming the crucial nature of teacher professional development as well as learning programs and schools that facilitate success for Latinos and English learners.

- WestEd: Inside High School Reform: Making the Changes That Matter
Reported here are the conclusions from formal evaluations over the past ten years of high school reform shepherded by the California Academic Partnership Program (CAPP). CAPP schools are each funded for three to five years, with grants of about $100,000 a year, to make fundamental changes for their students. As these schools discovered, not all changes are equally valuable, but some are simply essential. Inside High School Reform lays out some of the apparently universal lessons of making the reform changes that matter.
