Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Co-Publication of Routledge, the Center for Applied Linguistics, and the International Reading Association This book is a shorter version of Developing Literacy in Second-Language Learners, reporting the findings of the National Literacy Panel on Language-Minority Children and Youth. This book concisely summarizes what is known from empirical research about the development of literacy in language-minority children and youth, including development, environment, instruction, and assessment. This more accessible version of the full report is intended for teachers, administrators, and researchers and for use in a wide range of teacher preparation courses and in inservice/ staff development programs that deal with educating English language learners.

Book News Annotation:

Eighteen academics and researchers from the U.S. and Canada contribute eight chapters synthesizing the longer report, Developing Literacy in Second-Language Learners (2006), which describes the findings of the National Literacy Panel on Language- Minority Children and Youth. The introductory and concluding chapters are virtually unchanged from the original report. Shortened versions of the remaining chapters examine the development of literacy in second-language learners, cross-linguistic relationships in second-language learners, sociocultural contexts and literacy development, instruction and professional development, and student assessment. The shortened, more accessible version of the full report is designed for researchers, teacher preparation courses, in-service staff development programs, and individual teachers and other school practitioners.
