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.

SYSTEMATIC INSTRUCTION IN READING FOR SPANISH-SPEAKING STUDENTS

(2nd Ed.)

Students whose first language is not English are the fastest-growing group in public schools in all regions of the United States. Almost 10 million children between the ages of five and 17 live in the homes and communities in which a language other than English in spoken and presently most schools in the U.S. are under-educating many English learners. The achievement of Hispanic students needs to improve dramatically over the next five years and this book describes the cornerstone elements for bringing about this change. The initial chapter introduces direct instruction to be used with reading and literacy programs. Chapters 2 and 3 provide excellent review of the literature in language development and address developing language instruction, listening, and speaking with Spanish-speaking students and offers what a comprehensive language development program should look like. Chapter 4 reviews academic language and literacy instruction while the next addresses the components of instruction in Spanish. Chapter 6 offers lesson plan suggestions for Spanish-speaking students, while the following two sections discuss components that transfer and do not transfer in Spanish to English reading instruction. Chapter 9 reviews English language development and provides lesson plans for implementing SDAIE programs. Finally, Chapter 10 discusses two-way bilingual immersion and shares actual classroom schedules and lessons. This unique text will help in the preparation of primary grade teachers throughout the U.S. so that they may be successful with Hispanic students entering the public schools with little or no English background. It will also be a useful tool for school districts’ staff development in addressing school improvement goals for increasing the achievement of Hispanic students.

Approaches to Inclusive English Classrooms

A Teacher’s Handbook for Content-Based Instruction

Author: Dr. Kate Mastruserio Reynolds

Publisher: Multilingual Matters

ISBN: 1783093358

Category: Education

Page: 285

View: 1093

This book provides educators with an accessible guide to best practices concerning content-based instruction (CBI) models and their use in English learner inclusive classrooms. The author effectively bridges the gap between theory and practice with a critical analysis of practical examples and diverse strategies for the inclusion of English learners into K-12 general education courses. The book also raises controversial questions regarding who is qualified to teach English learners and who is responsible for doing so, looking at the difficulties faced by both general educators and ESL teachers in Inclusive Classrooms. By providing a lens through which both ESL teachers and general educators are able to analyze, compare and contrast a range of widely-employed CBI methods, this book allows teachers to make informed decisions in their EL program development and work with English learners in K-12 schools.
