A Kaleidoscope of Models and Strategies for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages
Norland, Deborah; Pruett-Said, Terry
Teacher Ideas Press
Written by teachers for teachers, "A Kaleidoscope of Models and Strategies for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages," is a practical introduction to models and strategies employed in the teaching of English language learners. Each chapter discusses several models and/or strategies by focusing on particular methods and gives the background of the method's development, discusses practical examples and applications, gives possible caveats and modifications, and a list for further reading about the method. It is written to be of immediate use to classroom teachers but would also be valuable as a supplementary textbook. All methods discussed are currently being taught in Norland's classes and implemented through the student teaching program at Luther College. Strategies include: Grammar-based Approaches, The Silent Way, Experiential Language Learning, Literature-based Approach, Family Literacy, and many more.
