Abstract:In the three classrooms where English was the language of instruction, the literacy practices provided by the ESL teacher appeared to be more effective in increasing ELLs' L2 linguistic capital due to her explicit instruction on literacy components, use of accommodated speech, and giving constructive feedback on the ELL children's writing. In contrast, the 4th grade and 5th grade mainstream teachers' literacy practices fell into the misconceptions reported by researchers. Another implication concerns in-service teachers' professional development, which assists them in advancing their knowledge and skills to provide quality literacy instruction for ELLs.
