A Course for Teaching English Learners (CTEL Handbook) offers strategies to equip teachers to work with English language learners, balancing fundamental principles with practical classroom techniques. This book offers in a single volume a wealth of background principles underlying the cultural, linguistic, and sociocultural contexts and foundations of learning and by providing a comprehensive framework that doesn't only focus on reading and writing. Provisions in the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) call for yearly accountability in English language growth for language-minority students. The CTEL Handbook addresses the new focus on testing procedures, as well as adaptation for English learners during the test-taking process. Throughout, Lynne Diaz-Rico provides the necessary background knowledge needed to educate English learners and also includes a variety of classroom methods for English language development in listening, speaking, reading, writing, and computer-assisted instruction. --From publisher's description.

Category: Education

Page: 210

Access to Academics: Planning Instruction for K-12 Classrooms with ELLs takes a different look at language than most other books – it addresses it as something students must use constantly, in a variety of school venues and in different ways depending on the context. The book shows language as vital to content access and thereby academic achievement, but, more importantly, it also provides step-by-step instructions explaining how to help students acquire the language they need. Although the main emphasis is on English language learners (ELLs), the term “diverse learners” used throughout also encompasses the great variety in any classroom of student backgrounds, abilities, needs, and interests.

Study Writing is for students at intermediate level and above who need to develop their writing skills and write better academic essays, projects, research articles or theses. Study Writing encourages students to develop their writing strategies, seek feedback on their own writing and analyse expert writers' texts in order to become more reflective and effective writers. Study Writing helps learners to write more effectively by: - introducing key concepts in academic writing such as the role of generalizations and definitions and the application of principles like the Clarity Principle and the Honesty Principle - exploring the use of information structures, including those used to develop and present an argument - familiarizing learners with the characteristics of academic genre - analysing the grammar and vocabulary associated with these aspects of academic writing - offering practice in processes and strategies known to help learners improve their academic writing. The book contains a full answer key and helpful teaching notes. This second edition has been updated to reflect modern thinking in the teaching of writing, to include more recent texts in the disciplines presented and to take account of new media and the growth of online resources.
