What Teachers Need To Know About Language (02 Edition)by Carolyn Temple Adger
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 131-132).
The title of this book derives from its central chapter, written by Lily Wong Fillmore and Catherine E. Snow, demonstrating that all teachers need deep, broad knowledge about language to support their students' language and literacy development. Five commentaries on that chapter from the perspective of early childhood education, teacher certification, and teacher preparation and professional development point out the value and the challenges of improving educators' understanding about language.
