Becoming Literate In English As A Second Language by Susan Goldman, Henry T. Trueba

This volume contains empirical research on issues relevant to understanding the educational experiences of minority language students in American public schools. Bringing together some of the most recent empirical findings regarding the acquisition of literacy in English as a second language from fields such as anthropology, special education, cognitive psychology, discourse analysis and sociolinguistics, it helps readers understand the difficulties involved in the process of English literacy acquisition of speakers of other languages and the reasons why some minorities experience lower levels of academic success.
