Summary: Language minority students, including Limited English Proficiency (LEP) students, constitute the fastest growing segment of the U.S. student population today. Still, the controversy around how best to educate these students continues to swirl, with programs across the nation under attack.

Written with mainstream educators in mind, Myths and Realities provides fundamental background information on issues such as second language acquisition; legal requirements for educating linguistically diverse students; and placement, program, and assessment information. Chapters are organized in broad topic areas, each presenting a commonly held, seemingly plausible, yet ultimately false notion about the education of language minority students. Then, in a straightforward review of the research, myths like these are dispelled:

MYTH: School districts are not obliged to enroll students who are not legal residents of the United States.

MYTH: Younger children are more effective language learners than older learners.

MYTH: Intake assessment tools such as the Bilingual Syntax Measure (BSM) and the Language Assessment Scales (LAS) provide sufficient information for the appropriate placement and teaching of L2 students.

Adding to the practicality of the text are realistic vignettes that ground the research in day-to-day scenarios; commonsense tables and figures offered in reproducible format (perfect for meetings and trainings); a glossary that defines the often confusing array of acronyms and jargon; and a thorough list of resources, including websites.

In a climate of high-stakes accountability, this guide will be invaluable to busy school administrators, curriculum supervisors, inservice and preservice teachers, and policymakers at all levels. ...show less
