My hope is to boost reading comprehension in ELLs by exposing them to culturally relevant books. When ELLs are being instructed in English, they need the additional support that comes through engagement with texts that connect to their cultural background. Picture books can help ELLs make connections with the stories and can extend the reading by comparing characters and events to their own families and experiences. Culturally relevant literature helps students relate to the story and activate prior knowledge. If students can connect in some way to the story, they will be more engaged. The books can also be used as great conversation starters with reluctant speakers.
