‘Science of Reading’ and English-Learner Advocates Reach Common Ground
- Share article
Two groups have aimed to find consensus in one contested area of the ongoing reading wars: what the “science of reading” should look like for English learners.
In a statement released in October , The Reading League, an organization that advocates for the science of reading, and the National Committee for Effective Literacy, a group that promotes research and policies to support literacy development for English learners, agreed on best practices for evidence-based reading instruction for EL and emergent bilingual students.
It’s a collaboration that wouldn’t have been predictable only a year and a half ago, said Claude Goldenberg, a professor emeritus at Stanford University, in a panel discussion on the statement this week at the California Reading Coalition’s annual virtual summit.
In 2022, NCEL released a white paper arguing that new state legislation across the country mandating explicit, systematic instruction in foundational reading skills would harm ELs. The laws and policies districts were enacting encouraged drilling phonics in isolation, they said, and neglected the development of the spoken language instruction that is crucial for ELs.
The statement reignited a debate about equity in the science of reading movement. Advocates for some of these state-level changes argue that they’re necessary to ensure that all students, including those with reading disabilities and difficulties, learn how to read well. But NCEL argued that in neglecting ELs’ specific needs, these laws were creating new inequities.
What Is the 'Science of Reading'?
In a science of reading framework, teachers start by teaching beginning readers the foundations of language in a structured progression—like how individual letters represent sounds and how those sounds combine to make words. ...
At the same time, teachers are helping students build their vocabulary and their knowledge about the world through read-alouds and conversations. Eventually, teachers help students weave these skills together like strands in a rope, allowing them to read more and more complex texts.
Most teachers in the United States weren’t trained in this framework. Instead, the majority say that they practice balanced literacy, a less structured approach that relies heavily on teacher choice and professional judgment. While the majority of students in balanced literacy classrooms receive some phonics instruction, it may not be taught in the explicit, systematic way that researchers have found to be most effective for developing foundational reading skills.
Students are generally “reading” short books of their choice very early on, even if they can’t sound out all the words. Teachers encourage kids to use multiple sources of information—including pictures and context clues—to guess at what the text might say.
When NCEL first released the white paper last year, The Reading League discussed whether to respond, said Kari Kurto, the director of the National Science of Reading Project at the Reading League.
“Through the discussion, we developed a feeling that maybe we needed to hear out some of these things that were of concern for NCEL, and maybe let’s not go back and forth without listening to and learning from each other,” Kurto said at this week’s panel.
The result was a series of meetings between the two groups that ended in a summit, where they landed on a series of shared priorities.
The process could be “a little tense” at times, said Martha Hernandez, the executive director of Californians Together, an advocacy coalition for English learners. Still, she said, “we recognized the need for mutual respect and understanding.”
Kurto hopes that the collaborative process can be a model for other groups, including policymakers. If advocates in the field can demonstrate where they’re aligned, it provides a road map for educators and administrators looking to implement effective practice, she said.
“We can avoid that conflict. We can avoid that lost time, because our students need us now,” Kurto said.
Statement offers guiding principles for reading instruction
The statement doesn’t cover every aspect of early reading—including some of the hottest flash points. It doesn’t, for example, offer an opinion on “ cueing ,” a strategy in which students are taught to rely on context and pictures to decipher words, which many reading researchers say can impede their ability to read text accurately and fluently.
But it does provide a set of guiding principles to frame reading instruction for English learners. Among them:
- All students should receive “comprehensive instruction” that covers “language development, development of content knowledge, vocabulary, foundational skills for decoding, comprehension, and writing.”
- Foundational skills should be “explicitly and systematically taught.”
- Mapping spoken language to written language requires explicit instruction.
- English-language development must be prioritized for ELs, “to ensure students are not simply decoding, or attempting to decode, words that they do not understand.”
- Students’ home language is an asset, and students should have access to dual-language programs whenever possible.
The meetings between The Reading League and NCEL offered an opportunity to clear up some misconceptions on both sides, said Hernandez. In these meetings, participants acknowledged that sometimes the science of reading movement had “overlooked” the needs of emergent bilinguals, she said. Participants were also able to clarify that the science of reading isn’t a rigid instructional program, or just focused on a narrow range of foundational skills—rather, it’s a comprehensive approach to applying evidence-based practices, Hernandez added.
Some of these misconceptions are explicitly addressed in the joint statement, which clarifies that the science of reading is not “a single, specific component of instruction, such as phonics.”
Hernandez hopes that districts can use the statement to identify best practices, and to foreground all students in decision-making about literacy.
ELs and bilingual students should not just be a “box on the side” of curriculum materials and professional development programs, she said.

- Job Outlook
Reading teachers specialize in teaching students how to read. They can work in tandem with a classroom teacher and help very young children who are just learning how to recognize letters. Or, they can work with older students with learning disabilities such as dyslexia and help them develop reading skills at an age-appropriate level. Just like regular teachers, reading teachers need to plan lessons, grade assignments, and manage a classroom. They make sure to adjust their lessons to each child's ability and to find creative ways to encourage reading in students, for example, by putting up posters with words in their classroom. Reading teachers can help identify and diagnose learning disabilities and connect students with any additional support they may need.
Like any other teacher, reading teachers are usually required to have a master's degree in education. However, this depends on the state or school; they can get away with only a bachelor's degree. They also need to have a license to teach from their state.
Reading teachers can specialize in teaching literacy by focusing on special education while in school or through professional experience. They can earn an average salary of $46,765 a year.

Explore Lucrative ESL Teaching Jobs
A career in ESL (English as a Second Language) teaching can be rewarding and impactful. This field offers you the chance to make a positive difference in students' lives. Whether you’re considering local opportunities or dream of teaching abroad, the world of ESL teaching is vast and varied.
We'll walk you through everything you need to know about ESL teaching jobs, from the qualifications needed to where you can find these roles. In addition, we'll explain how Pepperdine University's MA in TESOL might be your passport to a rewarding teaching profession.
What is ESL?
ESL stands for English as a Second Language and is a field that focuses on teaching English to people who speak a foreign language. From international students in elementary school to adults, ESL encompasses a wide range of learners. The demand for English teachers is on the rise in the United States and internationally.
Degree Requirements to Teach ESL
A bachelor's degree is typically required in order to become an English teacher. However, a TEFL certification or other teaching qualification can help you get your foot in the door. If you want to pursue specialized roles or chances with higher compensation, you might consider an advanced degree.
A MA in TESOL can give you the skills you need to stand out. This curriculum will provide you with an understanding of teaching English as a second language. The program will expand your knowledge of language structure, language acquisition theories, and cutting-edge pedagogical practices.
But it's not just about theory; these programs often include a practical component where you'll get hands-on teaching experience in diverse settings. Clinical practicum placements, often a highlight, enable you to apply classroom learning to real-world scenarios, helping you become proficient in creating lesson plans, managing a classroom, and adapting teaching methods for different learner needs.
Types of ESL Teaching Jobs
When it comes to ESL teaching, the job opportunities are as varied as they are rewarding. Whether you see yourself in a middle school classroom in South Korea or a school principal in a private language school, there's likely a perfect fit for you.
Elementary Teacher at a Public Schools
Public schools are one of the most common venues for ESL teaching. Here, you'll mainly focus on helping elementary or middle school students adapt to an English-speaking environment. The goal is not just language acquisition but also helping kids integrate socially and culturally.
Schools often offer specialized ESL programs or "pull-out" sessions where students receive intensive language instruction. And since this is a public service, expect to have benefits like job stability and health insurance.
Teacher or Assistant Teacher at a Private Language Academy
A private language academy is a specialized school focused on teaching foreign languages. Unlike traditional educational institutions where language courses might be part of a broader curriculum, a private language academy centers solely on language education. The goal is usually to enhance communicative competence in the language being studied. Courses are often designed to supplement formal education or to build upon existing language skills.
The world of online tutoring has exploded in the post-COVID years, and ESL is no exception. As an online tutor, you set your own hours and work from wherever you please. The student demographic is diverse. Student Ages range from kids to adults. This is also an excellent way to break into the international market without leaving your home.
Many global companies are on the hunt for ESL experts to train their workforce. These jobs can be both domestic and international, and they often involve teaching employees specialized vocabulary and communication skills pertinent to the industry. These roles usually offer higher pay and could come with additional perks like travel opportunities.
ESL Teaching Jobs in the United States
The United States offers a robust job market for ESL educators, with roles in settings ranging from K-12 public schools to higher education and beyond.
Public Schools in Multicultural Cities
In multicultural urban areas across the U.S., the role of an ESL teacher is pivotal. The population in these cities often includes a significant number of non-English speakers, making the need for ESL education substantial. As an ESL teacher in a public school, you're not just a language instructor but also a cultural mediator. Your role involves helping students adapt to the academic and social landscapes of their new environment. Public schools typically offer job stability, benefits packages, and opportunities for professional development.
Community Colleges and Adult Education Centers
Beyond the K-12 sphere, ESL teachers are increasingly in demand at community colleges and adult education centers. These settings usually attract immigrants and refugees, and are looking to improve their English language skills. Here, you'll often find smaller class sizes and more freedom in curriculum design. The focus shifts towards functional language skills that adults can apply in everyday situations, like job interviews or daily communication.
If a traditional teaching environment isn't your style, freelance tutoring offers a lot of flexibility. This path allows you to be your own boss, set your own hours, and even define your rates. Tutoring can range from helping individual students with academic English to aiding adults in professional English. While this option offers the ultimate in flexibility, keep in mind that it also comes with responsibilities like self-marketing and tax management.
ESL Teaching Jobs Abroad
If you're yearning to combine your passion for teaching with the thrill of travel, teaching ESL abroad is a compelling option. Countries around the globe are on the lookout for qualified ESL instructors, and many offer attractive compensation packages to lure the best talent. Below, we'll explore some popular international destinations and what you can expect while teaching there.
South Korea has become a hotspot for ESL teachers in recent years. Most jobs are in private language schools or public schools. The country offers competitive salaries, often with added benefits like housing allowances or even free accommodation. Plus, South Korea has a rich cultural heritage and is known for its excellent food, providing a full experience beyond the classroom.
Japan's well-established English teaching programs offer structured opportunities for ESL teachers. You could teach in a public school or a private language institute. Japan offers respectable salaries, and while the cost of living can be high in cities like Tokyo, smaller towns are more affordable. Teaching in Japan also gives you a front-row seat to a culture steeped in tradition, yet remarkably forward-thinking.
The Middle East
Countries like the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia offer lucrative packages for ESL teachers. Many times these packages are often tax-free. These roles usually require a higher level of qualification, like a master's degree or extensive teaching experience. The perks can be incredible, from top-notch healthcare to travel allowances. However, it's essential to consider the significant cultural differences and legal frameworks you'll encounter.
While South Korea, Japan, and the Middle East are commonly cited destinations, other countries like Costa Rica, China, Vietnam, and various European nations also have a robust demand for ESL teachers. These locations might offer lower salaries but often come with a lower cost of living, enabling you to explore new cultures without breaking the bank.
How to Find an ESL Teaching Job
There are several ways to find ESL teaching jobs, both in the U.S. and abroad. Let's review some strategies that can help you increase your chances.
Specialized ESL Job Boards and Forums
Instead of sticking solely to general job boards like Indeed or LinkedIn, try specialized ESL job boards. Websites like TEFL.com , and Dave's ESL Cafe are focused entirely on ESL teaching positions, giving you access to opportunities you might not find elsewhere. The forums on these sites can also provide insider tips on what to expect from different employers or regions.
Don't underestimate the power of a strong professional network. Connections can often provide leads that you won't find on public job boards. Make use of alumni networks, particularly if you graduated from an educational program that specializes in TESOL or a related field. Don't hesitate to reach out to former classmates, professors, or practicum supervisors who might have valuable insights or job leads.
Becoming a member of a professional association in the TESOL field can also boost your job prospects. Associations often have their own job listings, exclusive to members, and provide opportunities for continued professional development. Popular options include TESOL International Association and IATEFL (International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language) .
Social Media and Online Communities
Sites like LinkedIn can also be helpful, but you should consider joining ESL-focused groups where opportunities are frequently shared. Platforms like Reddit or specialized Facebook groups can also be useful for job hunting and networking.
Some people prefer to work with recruitment agencies specialized in ESL teaching positions. These agencies typically have partnerships with schools and educational institutes and can handle a lot of the legwork for you. However, be sure to do your research and ensure the agency is reputable before diving in.
Other Career Opportunities With a TESOL Degree
A TESOL degree offers more than just a ticket to an ESL teaching job; it opens doors to a variety of career opportunities. If you're considering diversifying your professional journey, you'll be pleased to know that a TESOL degree equips you with a skill set that's applicable in multiple domains.
If you're skilled at creating educational content, curriculum development could be a natural fit. In this role, you'd be responsible for designing effective ESL teaching programs. This could involve everything from selecting textbooks to crafting lesson plans and evaluating educational materials. Your insights as a TESOL graduate can help make ESL curricula more effective and engaging for students of different ages and cultural backgrounds.
Consulting roles are another avenue where your expertise in TESOL can shine. Educational consultants often work with schools, government agencies, or educational tech companies, offering advice on how to improve ESL programs. This could range from teacher training to integrating technology in the classroom. Consultancy work usually involves problem-solving, analytical skills, and a good understanding of educational best practices.
Further Academic Pursuits
If research or academic work interests you, a TESOL degree is an excellent stepping stone for higher educational pursuits like doctoral studies. Academic roles allow you to explore the theoretical underpinnings of language acquisition, often leading to published research and thought leadership in the field. Academia can also offer opportunities for international collaborations and participation in global conferences.
Language Assessment and Testing
Language assessment roles focus on developing and administering language proficiency tests. These tests are crucial in various settings, including immigration, academia, and the workplace. Your understanding of language structure, pedagogy, and second language acquisition would be invaluable in crafting assessments that are both fair and effective.
Non-Profit and Humanitarian Work
If you're driven by a desire to make a social impact, consider roles in non-profit organizations focused on language and literacy. Your TESOL background could help you create effective programs for marginalized communities, refugees, or even adults looking to improve their language skills for better employment opportunities.
Get Your TESOL Degree at Pepperdine University

In Oregon, public school teachers are on strike in Portland
This is the first teachers' strike in the history of Oregon's largest school district. NPR's Michel Martin talks to reporter Lisa Balick of KOIN-TV, about why teachers walked off the job.
MICHEL MARTIN, HOST:
Schools in Portland, Ore., are closed for a second day today as a teacher strike continues.
A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:
The strike is the first for Portland Public Schools, which serves around 45,000 students. The Portland Association of Teachers have been negotiating with the district since their last contract expired in June. Here's Renard Adams from the Portland Public Schools bargaining team.
(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)
RENARD ADAMS: We have already offered a cost-of-living increase that is more than our increase in revenue. We know the union's bargaining team believes that it's insufficient, but we cannot responsibly accept their proposed 23% increase.
MARTIN: Lisa Balick, a reporter with KOIN-TV in Portland, Ore., is with us now to tell us more about it. Good morning, Lisa.
LISA BALICK: Good morning, Michel.
MARTIN: Lisa, just tell us a little bit more, if you would, about the conditions that led to this strike - or at least the conditions that the teachers say led to this strike.
BALICK: There's really just some key issues - obviously, higher pay. They want smaller class sizes and more planning time. You know, we talk about the pay. The district is offering currently a 4.5% the first year, 3% each of the next two years. Teachers want almost double that.
MARTIN: And what are you hearing from teachers?
BALICK: They are strong in support of a strike action. There were hundreds that turned out for a rally yesterday. They believe the district really can find the money - it's about $200 million - by making cuts and further depleting the reserve fund. Now, the president, in fact, of the National Education Association was here in Portland yesterday for rallies. It's really a sign we may be seeing more of these strikes around the country.
MARTIN: You know, in other parts of the country, we've also heard that it's not just the pay, but it's also the working conditions, like the conditions that the buildings are in, for example, or things like that - lack of heat, lack of AC. Is that part of this as well?
BALICK: Definitely. These are some of the issues they are discussing at the table, for sure.
MARTIN: Now, school closures - look - are very disruptive to students and their families. Do you have a sense of - I know this is early days. Do you have any sense of, you know, how the broader community feels about this?
BALICK: Yes. I have been talking to a lot of parents as they were getting ready for this because the teachers had given their 10-day notice, and there was a sense this was going to happen even before that. Families really want more for the teachers. And having the kids home during the pandemic, I think they're painfully aware of how much work it is to help kids with their academics, behavior issues, mental health issues - very grateful that the teachers take on that responsibility of caring for many, many students in their day.
MARTIN: And say a bit more, if you would, about what officials from the Portland Public Schools are saying.
BALICK: They were saying at their news conferences yesterday that to meet the teacher demands, they would have to make massive cuts - laying off teachers, shortening the school year, possibly. Even the governor, who is a labor supporter, says the teacher demands would send the district off a financial cliff. The district is blaming the state for not giving them enough money for education. But what happened in Oregon back in 1990 is that voters passed a measure to limit the property taxes, which essentially pushed the biggest burden - paying for schools - to the state through income taxes.
MARTIN: So what's next? Do we have a sense of when the two sides might return to the bargaining table?
BALICK: I talked with both sides, and they both tell me that Friday they will both be at the bargaining table. But essentially what this means is no school for a second day today or on Friday, which was a scheduled day off.
MARTIN: That is Lisa Balick of KOIN-TV in Portland. Lisa, thanks so much for joining us.
BALICK: Thanks, Michel.
