The following guide was developed for pre-service and in-service middle school teachers who work with English Language Learners (ELLs). The basic propositions outlined in the paper were derived from the English for Second Language literature and should be used to support classroom teachers in meeting the academic and interpersonal needs of ELLs. This manual highlights many effective strategies for teachers of ELLs and promotes the need for social and academic success among all students. The manual can help to prepare everyone involved in the challenges of teaching ELLs, including students, peers, teachers, schools, and communities. The manual is arranged into the following sections: (a) Introduction, (b) Understand the students, (c) Understand the Friends, (d) Understand the Teacher, (e) Understand the Team, (f) Understand the school, (g) Understand the Community, and (h) Conclusion.
