Reading the World: Integrating Geography in an English Language Learner Literacy Program
Forrest, Scott N.
Journal of Geography, v101 n5 p191-198 Sep 2002
English language development classes focus on teaching students of other languages how to speak, read, and write English. They must also prepare students to meet the many standards and requirements that are prerequisites to content classes, such as geography, and high school graduation. This discussion focuses on the integration of literacy and geography in a classroom with English language learners. A common English language development model, the "Into, Through, Beyond" model of learning, sets a foundation that integrates components of English language acquisition with language arts and geography standards. In turn, this approach to learning prepares the learners for success in social and academic arenas.
