      Julie Nora Jana Echevarria Nell K Duke Ellin Oliver Keene Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the No More Low Expectations for English Learners book, this is one of the most wanted Julie Nora Jana Echevarria Nell K Duke Ellin Oliver Keene author readers around the world.

    2. This quick read addresses some common misconceptions about English Learners (ELs). The audience is teachers, particularly those who want to know more about how to help ELs succeed in school. I read this book for #ELLChat_BkClub.

    3. This book has a wonderful premise, teach EL students from an asset perspective and hold them to high cognitive expectations; however, it is so slim and introductory that it doesn't really help teachers move forward beyond basic strategies.

    4. I appreciated the asset-based approach shared by the authors; however, it didn't provide me with much new information or strategies.
