Overview

An exciting text that provides readers with specific strategies for facilitating language learning and literacy learning. Several themes are woven throughout: The meaning of academic learning and learning potential; the effect of oral and written language proficiency on successful learning in both social and academic contexts; and, the "whys" and "hows" of delivering services to language and learning disabled students, particularly as education moves toward classroom-based models of inclusion.
