Effective Practices and Principles To Support English Language Learners in the Early Childhood Classroom.
Lake, Vickie E.; Pappamihiel, N. Eleni
Childhood Education, v79 n4 p200-03 Sum 2003
This article synthesizes key principles that teachers should utilize to support English language learners in mainstream early childhood classrooms. Principles include treating children fairly, which entails treating children differently; providing an appropriate language environment; providing adequate English instruction to allow basic interaction communication skill development and cognitive academic language proficiency; and understanding that children do not automatically learn language faster than adults. Stages of second-language acquisition are described. (KB)
