Promotional Information

"Who is the English Language Learner? How do I communicate with them? How do I prepare them for standardized tests? How do I teach them advanced reading skills when their vocabulary is so limited?" These are the questions raised by teachers facing the daunting task of teaching English Language Learners regular subject content in the general classroom. The No Child Left Behind policy (2001) raises the accountability for all our students including English Language Learners. This text is a concise and practical resource book that combines current research in English language learning with teaching application strategies for the preK-12th grade classroom. The teaching strategies are research based, time tested, classroom proven, and they work. Written for student teachers and experienced teachers new to English Language Learners, the author uses her own teaching experience in the Author Insight feature to offer practical suggestions. Other unique features of the text are the Classroom Scenarios, that present authentic voices from the classroom that connect the scenario to the content of the chapter, Guiding Discussion Questions that follow each scenario stimulate talk and discussion and encourage teachers to become analytical and reflective, and Classroom Application Strategies provide teachers with practical, research --based teaching strategies.
