Strategies for Monolingual Teachers in Multilingual Classrooms.
Towell, Janet; Wink, Joan
A group of instructional strategies for monolingual teachers to use with elementary and secondary school students with limited English skills are described. The strategies are drawn from a teacher education curriculum focusing on this issue. All are based on the notion that monolingual and bilingual teachers can team teach to break down linguistic and cultural barriers in the classroom. All were also experienced by monolingual and bilingual teaching credential students in the course of a demonstration. They include the Total Physical Response technique, sheltered subject matter teaching, use of comprehensible input, efforts to lower the affective filter of students, use of realia, dramatization of a story, and monolingual-bilingual team teaching for primary language instruction. Some useful student reading materials and teacher resources are noted. Contains 20 references. (MSE)
