The State of the Art of Secondary ESL Teaching and Learning
Gunderson, Lee
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v52 n3 p184-188 Nov 2008
Issues related to the long-term problems of the teaching and learning of secondary ESL students are described and discussed. It is concluded that the National Literacy Panel rationale for selecting approved research demonstrates a significant misunderstanding of the realities of secondary teaching and learning. The paper concludes with the suggestion that an unrealistic faith has been placed in science as a way to reveal truths about teaching methods and approaches. The author concludes that the same national determination to put a man on the moon should be applied to discovering how science, math, social studies, and English teachers can teach successfully their subjects to classes that include increasing numbers of ESL students.
