Research conducted in Panama by two Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) professors—Dr. Ana Lado and Dr. Clara Hauth—was published in The Reading Teacher, an academic journal that has been active for over 70 years. The article they co-authored, “Selecting Picture Books for ELL Beginners in Panama: Tellability,” was published on February 21, 2021. It explores the importance of considering distinctive characteristics of English Language Learners (ELLs) as it relates to the tellability vs. readability of picture books.
Their study found that a picture really is worth a thousand words. “The purpose of the journal article,” said Dr. Lado, “is to provide teachers with steps to selecting appropriate books for ELLs.”
In the coming weeks, the ELL Picture Book Guide and additional Teacher Resources will be available on the Marymount University School of Education website. These will be published by the end of the spring 2022 semester.
