AbstractEnglish language learners have the potential advantage of growing up to be bilingual adults with valuable career skills, but too often they do not experience academic success and choose to drop out of school rather than graduating. The goal of this qualitative study was to interview students about their reading preferences and habits as well as their feelings toward reading from elementary school through high school, in order to bring their voices into the conversation about how best to educate ELL students and keep them in school and on track to become successful adults. Eight high school students, all native speakers of Spanish of Mexican descent who had moved to the U.S. with their families before starting the fourth grade, were interviewed between December and February of 2012. The study includes recommendations for best practices for teaching reading in all grades to English Language Learners arriving in the United States before the fourth grade.
