What Teachers Need To Know about Language.
Adger, Carolyn Temple, Ed.; Snow, Catherine E., Ed.; Christian, Donna, Ed.
This book represents a conversation among educators and others concerned with language and literacy development. The conversation began by chance at an international conference on literacy when Catherine Snow and Lily Wong Fillmore began talking about the escalating demands that the educational system in the United States places on teachers without giving them the support they need to meet those demands. Chapters include (1) What Teachers Need To Know about Language, (2) Language and Early Childhood Programs, (3) Educating Teachers about Language, (4) Teacher Knowledge about Language, (5) Incorporating Linguistic Knowledge in Standards for Teacher Performance, and (6) Preparing Teachers To Guide Children's Language Development.
