Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

In the 15 chapters assembled here by Li and Edwards (teacher education and Literacy Achievement Research Center, Michigan State U.), language, literacy, and education scholars and teachers from the US review current research on all aspects of K-12 English language learner instruction, identifying what works. They provide guidelines for reading, writing, oral language, vocabulary, content-domain literacies, and other skill areas; assessing culturally and linguistically diverse students; sociocultural issues like how to build school-home-community partnerships; and professional development. They also recommend ways to teach adolescent English language learners, dual language learners, bilingual students, Native American learners, and those with learning disabilities.
