More Willingly to School: Tools for Teachers to Cope with Linguistically Diverse Classrooms
Broeder, Peter; Kistemaker, Mariska
Intercultural Education, v26 n3 p218-234 2015
Students' lack of school success often lies in the differences between the language used at home and the "school language" they are required to use at school. A framework was drawn up in which five domains are distinguished where specific problems might be located: language-internal aspects (mastery of vocabulary, grammar, etc.), literacy (reading and writing skills), interaction (interpersonal communication skills), learning (content-related organizational and studying skills), and presentation (explanatory skills). To test the (practical) viability of this framework two studies were carried out (European policy experts and secondary-school teachers). New opportunities for teacher training are addressed.
