Written specifically for K–12 educators, this accessible book explains the processes involved in second-language acquisition and provides a wealth of practical strategies for helping English language learners (ELLs) succeed at reading. The authors integrate knowledge from two fields that often remain disconnected—linguistics and literacy—with a focus on what works in the classroom. Teachers learn effective practices for supporting students as they build core competencies not just for reading in English, but also for listening, speaking, and writing. Engaging vignettes and examples illustrate ways to promote ELLs’ communicative skills across the content areas and in formal and informal settings.
Whether you're new to teaching English language learners or an old hand, here's a guide that provides you with a firm baseline and can't-miss strategies for boosting the achievement of these students. A teacher with 26 years of experience uses familiar scenarios from actual classrooms to illustrate ideas and advice you can use right away: (1) Six key concepts and six common myths of second language acquisition; (2) Five stages of language acquisition and what to do at each; (3) Four stages of culture shock that newcomers go through before they become comfortable with the language; (4) How to know when an ell student is ready to speak; (5) How to match instruction to ell learning styles and thinking skills; (6) Main challenges that ell students face in learning reading, writing, math, science, and social studies; (7) How to use differentiated instruction, flexible grouping, and other essential practices for ell students; and (8) What to do for ell students during the first weeks of school.
