Summary

For courses in English as a Second Language, General Elementary Methods, and Bilingual Methods.

Designed for student teachers, general education teachers, and teachers of dual-language classes, this new edition of Teaching English Language Learners in Elementary School Communities is now aligned with the standards developed by TESOL. This text also addresses teachers' expectations of English Language Learners, solutions for the dual-language classroom, how to encourage active participation and social integration, mixed-language whole-class teaching, small groupwork, involving families and communities in school activities, and assessment-an invaluable resource for teaching English Language Learners.

Features

  • A sociocultural framework-Centered around social learning, rather than a psychological framework that centers around individual learning; supports the TESOL emphasis on the social aspect of English learning and the focus on the classroom as a learning community.
  • Applicability to dual-language education-In addition to student teaching and regular education.
  • Strategies offered for teaching children with limited or no English proficiency-To simultaneously learn English as they learn content.
    • Provides practitioner with tools necessary for handling the most challenging instructional scenario, as well as more moderate situations.
  • Introduction to a first-year teacher-Follow her progress as she implements the principles of ''Joinfostering'' that adapt her classroom to accommodate all students.
    • Students identify with someone like themselves, which results in less apprehension and more willingness to model the behavior of that first-year teacher.
  • Principles of second language acquisition-Presents ways to facilitate language development within large and small group settings.
    • Gives practitioners the instructional tools needed to design instruction for small groups as well as an entire class.
  • Critical consciousness included as the fifth essential feature of Joinfostering-Demonstrates how it can be incorporated into thematic lesson plans.
    • Practitioners are able to design instruction that extends beyond the mechanical techniques of teaching language arts in a bilingual classroom to the cultivation of respect and responsibility as supporting themes to lessons.
