Each chapter begins with a brief overview and ends with a short summary of the key points. “These authors are at the very forefront of scientifically testing and validating instructional practices for improving the writing and reading of adolescents who are English learners. Why is their research so good? It is informed by years of experience in the classroom and working with hundreds of teachers across California. What a powerful combination. My advice: ingest, consider, and employ the strategies described here. Your students will become better writers if you do.” —From the Foreword by Steve Graham, Warner Professor of Educational Leadership & Innovation, Arizona State University “This book is a tour de force. It’s up-to-the-minute in offering what teachers and administrators need, and what parents want. With examples of classrooms in action, it incorporates what research tells us about effective teaching and learning, and what the Common Core Standards and related policy are demanding, into successful and engaging activities that the authors' extensive research shows works. Helping English Learners to Write is a must-read. You will dog ear many pages for future use.” —Judith A. Langer, Vincent O’Leary Distinguished Research Professor, Director, Center on English Learning & Achievement, University at Albany

Tief im Dickicht des Amazonas verbergen sich uralte Geheimnisse. Ein riesiges Fabelwesen soll an den Wasserfällen des Orinoko umgehen, doch traut man der Legende, hat noch kein Mensch den Anblick überlebt. Alex ist 15 und begleitet seine Großmutter, eine berühmte Reiseschriftstellerin, auf eine Expedition, die die Bestie aufspüren soll. Eine unheimliche Stimmung liegt über dem Camp, als hätte der Dschungel tausend Augen. Da wird Alex entführt, und mit ihm Nadia, die Tochter des Expeditionsleiters. Die beiden fürchten um ihr Leben, bis sie herausfinden, dass ihre Entführer vom Indianerstamm der Nebelmenschen sich nur verteidigen wollen. Denn die Expedition ist Teil eines perfiden Plans, der den Einheimischen die Lebensgrundlage stehlen soll. Für Nadia und Alex ist die Sache klar: Sie müssen den Nebelmenschen helfen und das Geheimnis des Urwaldwesens lüften. In »Die Stadt der wilden Götter« werden aus Nadia und Alexander ›Aguila und Jaguar‹, ungleiche Freunde und mutige Abenteurer in einer Welt voller Magie und Geheimnisse. Ein Auftakt mit Paukenschlag zu einer Trilogie über die Macht der Kameradschaft.
