This second edition of Language Minority Students in the Mainstream Classroom integrates most of the current second language teaching and learning theories and instructional strategies and presents them in simple language using a cohesive approach. The purpose of the book is to make mainstream educators aware that language minority students, especially those who are not totally proficient in English, need special attention, appropriate assessment, an appropriate language environment, and a challenging curriculum. They also need a creative delivery of instruction which is relevant to their stage of English language development as well to as their performance in subject matter, content and skills. The focus in all twelve chapters is on making instructional content relevant and understandable to English language learners.
