ESL through Content-Area Instruction. Language in Education: Theory and Practice 69.
Crandall, JoAnn, Ed.
The concept of integrating language instruction with subject matter instruction is not new to language educators. It has been attempted for many years in adult education, in university programs for foreign students, and in specialized language courses for scientists, businessmen, and other professionals. To some degree, it has also been a part of elementary and secondary school English-as-a-Second-Language programs. The collection of essays included in this book--written by classroom teachers, researchers, and teacher educators--describes some of the ways in which English language instruction is being integrated with science, mathematics, and social studies in elementary, secondary, and college classes, and reviews some of the theoretical support for this approach. Included in this volume are an introduction to content-based ESL by JoAnn Crandall and the following chapters: (1) "Integrating Language and Mathematics Learning" (Theresa Corasaniti Dale, Gilberto J. Cuevas); (2) "ESL and Science Learning" (Carolyn Kessler, Mary Ellen Quinn); and (3) "ESL and Social Studies Instruction" (Melissa King, Barbara Fagan, Terry Bratt, Rod Baer). Contains references.
