Serving Linguistically and Culturally Diverse Students: Strategies for the School Librarian. ERIC Digest.
Dame, Melvina Azar
This digest discusses ways that the school librarian in one high school fostered a positive environment in the school library for English-as-a-Second-Language students and broadened the role of the school library in effecting literacy experiences for these students. The digest addresses how one school librarian made the library a welcoming place for ESL students, the establishment of a collection materials for these students, library resources available for both ESL and content teachers, library collaboration with agencies outside of the school, multicultural activities, and a literacy activity for native Spanish speaking students learning English and native-English speaking students learning Spanish. (Contains five references.) (JL)
