Teaching Reading to Language Minority Students. Papers Presented at the Annual Teaching of Reading in Bilingual Education Conference (3rd, Denton, Texas, June 13-15, 1984).
Rodriquez, Rudy, Ed.
Five papers from a conference designed to examine current and emerging practices for promoting literacy among second language learners of English are presented. The unifying theme of cultural pluralism covers a variety of topics: positive attitudes toward reading, schema theory, teachers' verbal interaction strategies, the assumption that children can successfully acquire two languages simultaneously, and rhythmical structures of language. Papers and authors are: "Promoting Literacy in the Classroom: From Theory to Practice" (David L. Brown and Sheryl L. Santos); "Reading Comprehension Instructional Strategies: Aids for the Bilingual Reader" (Idalia Rodriquez Pickens); "Teachers' Questions During Reading Instruction to Limited-English-Speaking Students" (Michele Hewlett-Gomez);"A Framework for Developing Early Language and Reading Skills in a Bilingual Nursery Setting" (Irma Guadarrama); and "Oral Interpretation: A Metacognitive Strategy for Reading" (Marjory Brown-Azarowicz).
