Overview

This practical, hands-on book provides 50 carefully-chosen strategies to help ELL pupils understand content materials while perfecting their skill at speaking, reading, writing, and listening in English. Each strategy is accompanied by a definition, rationale, and step-by-step implementation instructions; and, all are specifically tied to the most current ELL standards. Included use of current Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) standards ensures future teachers learn strategies that support TESOL's three goals, nine standards, and three grade-level groupings–supports teachers' documentation of standards-based planning and teaching, as well as monitoring and individualization of instruction for ELL.

Organized into five sections which flow easily from theory and planning, through learner involvement and vocabulary building, to increasing comprehension. Numerous strategies in the theoretical overview section, plus suggestions for assessment integrated into many strategies in other sections. Provides a repertoire of non-traditional assessment ideas such as anecdotal records, performance samples, and portfolios. Integrates material on the use of educational technology such as the internet, visual aids, etc. Includes thorough, concise summary of relevant research from Krashen, Cummins, Terrell, Swain, Asher, and others.

New To This Edition:

  • NEW! Developmental Profile of English Language Development serves as an example of a powerful assessment tool —located in the Teacher Resources section— that can be used in combination with performance sampling and observation. In addition, assessment strategies are explained in the theoretical overview in Section I.
  • NEW! Learn to enhance learning through integrated technology suggestions. A technology icon is displayed in the margin adjacent to each technology suggestion for easy identification.
  • NEW! Unique videos on DVD illustrate classroom use of select strategies from the text to use with English Learners. Classroom discussion starters included in the text encourage class discussion or further exploration of classroom examples.
