First and Second Language Literacy: From Research to Practice. Voices from the Pacific Islands. [Videotape].
Pacific Resources for Education and Learning, Honolulu, HI.
This hour-long videotape captures the events of "First and Second Language Literacy: From Research to Practice," a literacy teleconference hosted by Pacific Resources for Education and Learning (PREL). Regional and national educators explore research-based effective practices for teaching and reading to diverse student populations. Through video vignettes, viewers enter classrooms in which reading is taught in English as well as in heritage languages. The video can help expand understanding of research-based strategies for teaching reading to English language learners in linguistically diverse settings. Viewers see classrooms from three Pacific island communities: Kosrae, where reading is initially taught in Kosraean; American Samoa, where English is the language of instruction, and Samoan is used for support; and Hawaii where English-speaking students are taught through immersion in Hawaiian.
