Our current education system is, in many cases, failing the most vulnerable among us, including, but not limited to, the impoverished, immigrants, and nonnative speakers of English. Thus, it is crucial that curricula begin to focus on improving the educational experiences of these students so that all children may have the opportunity to succeed. Within this framework, the following aspects are outlined as they relate to the context of an inclusive, 21st century general education classroom with English Language Learners: an overview of influential pedagogical philosophies, broad educational goals for students, sample unit summaries and lesson plans, and evidence-based assessment practices.
