In many classrooms across North America, teachers face the challenge of how to help the growing number of children who are not native English speakers. This article describes several strategies teachers can use for approaching beginning reading of English with second-language learners. These include: (1) A comprehension-centered curriculum; (2) A biliterate environment; (3) Expanding language arts; (4) Reading to students; (5) Writing with students; and (6) Developing reading for meaning skills.
