Diverse Students and the School Library Media Specialist: Meeting the Challenge.
Dame, Melvina Azar
The school library media specialist holds a strategic position to collaborate with English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) teachers in designing activities that not only promote multicultural understanding, but also engage linguistically and culturally diverse students in the whole range of language learning and literacy. The unlimited resources of the school library media center can be adapted to benefit both ESL teachers and their students by adapting already existing resources to practices of second language acquisition methodology. The strategies described in this paper include the use of advance organizers, picture files, visuals, and books without words. (VWL)
