Perez, Bertha

Addresses the issue of teaching children who are acquiring English as a Second Language. Proposes involving children in "instructional conversations" (rather than drills) in which children investigate academic topics of their choice, focusing on concepts and content, and learning language that is situated and also related to the content they need to be learning to succeed in school.
