Abstract

Teacher educators are responsible for teaching pre-service teachers how to integrate culturally and linguistically responsive instruction within the context of Common Core State Standards. This chapter focuses on what teacher educators need to know about preparing social studies pre-service teachers to work effectively with English Language Learners (ELLs) in secondary social studies classes. Successful teachers of ELLs in social studies incorporate a variety of methods to help students interact with complex text, while engaging in inquiry and higher-order thinking. The authors share research-based instructional strategies they use with pre-service teachers and provide examples from the edTPA© (Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning and Equity (SCALE)) portfolios and ESOL lessons of two successful pre-service teachers who taught social studies to ELLs.
