LEP students should have access to the same body of knowledge, skills, & ways of thinking about the world from the academic core as English-speaking students receive. This handbook is designed for teachers working directly with language-minority students; for parents of LEP children; for administrators; & for other interested parties. It is particularly useful in describing how the requirements of the core curriculum, as reflected in the subject-area frameworks, interact with the special needs of LEP students. Award-Winner!
