Literacy Development for Bilingual Students: A Manual for Secondary Teachers and Administrators.
Walsh, Catherine, Ed.; Prashker, Hana, Ed.
This manual is a collection of reports of library research, classroom research, and classroom experience of teachers of bilingual education and English as a Second Language. The guide is intended as an aid to teachers and administrators, who are encouraged to use and adapt the ideas for their own students. The essays include the following: "Literacy and School Success: Considerations for Programming and Instruction" (Catherine Walsh); "Assessing and Evaluating Where Studens Are and Where They Are Going" (Eileen Buianowski, Carmen O'Connor); "A Theme-Based Approach to Literacy" (Lisa Franklin, Lionel Hogu, Michael Mankin); "A Case Study of Low-Literate Hispanic Students" (Maria Gheridian); "A Proposed Curriculum for Older Literacy Students" (Phuc Huu Nguyen, Ruth Weinstein); and"On the Way to an Alternative Educational Program for 'At Risk' High School Students" (Rosario Gomez-Sanford). A final section lists practical resources for the high school literacy classroom, including lesson plan ideas, suggested readings, and supplementary readings.
