Annotated Teacher Resource Bibliography for Working Effectively with Limited English Proficient Students with Interrupted Formal Education.
This annotated bibliography lists 48 resources intended for elementary and secondary level educators with a student population that includes limited-English-proficient (LEP) students, often over the traditional age for their educational level, who have not had continuous formal education. These students may have limited or no literacy in their native language or English, and often have difficulty in reaching their potential. The bibliography identifies areas of inquiry important for this population. The first section cites source of information on the needs and characteristics of this group. The second section cites resources on model programs, those both specifically for newcomers and others. Section three addresses instructional issues, both general and for literacy. Several additional documents and contact persons or organizations are also listed. (MSE)
