How Can I Help My Child Learn to Read English as a Second Language?
Suggestions for ways in which parents can help their children learn to read English are contained in this short booklet. Activities to be performed in the home, such as listening to and talking to the child in any language, reading aloud, reading for oneself, obtaining books for the home, and organizing study time for the child, are discussed. Community activities for parents, such as adult classes, museum trips, and school volunteer participation, are encouraged. A list of sources for reading materials and magazine articles on the problems of bilingualism is included. (MKM)
