Literacy Instruction for English Language Learners Pre-K-2
Barone, Diane M.; Xu, Shelley Hong
Guilford Publications
Summarizing current research and weaving it into practical instructional strategies that teachers can immediately use with young English language learners (ELLs), this book addresses a major priority for today's primary-grade classrooms. All aspects of effective instruction for ELLs are explored: oral language development and instruction, materials, word study, vocabulary, comprehension, writing, and home-school connections. Assessment is discussed throughout, and is also covered in a separate chapter. The volume is packed with realistic examples, lesson planning ideas, book lists, online resources, and reproducibles. Discussion and reflection questions enhance its utility as a professional development tool or course text. The table of contents includes: (1) Creating Classrooms to Engage Learners; (2) Working with Families; (3) Assessment; (4) Oral Language Development and Instruction; (5) Encouraging All Students to Become Writers; (6) Instructional Materials Supportive of Student Learning; (7) Phonics, Spelling and Vocabulary; (8) Engaging English Language Learners in the Comprehension Process; and (9) Visits to Classrooms and Schools.
