"Whole Language for Second Language Learners offers demonstrative proof that the key to the success of bilingual students lies within a whole language approach. The purpose of the book is threefold:" "1. To show why whole language is important for all learners, especially second language learners." "2. To provide examples of teachers applying whole language across different grade levels and with students from a variety of linguistic and cultural backgrounds." "3. To analyze from a whole language perspective traditional methods of teaching a second language." "Each chapter contrasts a commonsense assumption about teaching second language students with whole language alternatives." "Readers will gain an understanding of how to apply whole language in classrooms where some or all of the students speak English as another language. Teachers who are already applying whole language will learn about ESL and bilingual methods, second language acquisition, and the importance of the first language and culture of all students. The book contains examples of teachers who have successfully applied whole language theory to their working methods with students of all ages and different backgrounds. Most useful is the inclusion of practical ideas for organizing curriculum on a daily or long-term basis and sample content area lessons consistent with a whole language approach and appropriate for all students, especially second language students." "Full of language stories and examples of student work, Whole Language for Second Language Learners is essential reading for ESL and bilingual teachers and teacher educators, as well as any teacher looking for whole language alternatives and ideas to use with ESL students in the classroom."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Educating dual language learners (DLLs) and English learners (ELs) effectively is a national challenge with consequences both for individuals and for American society. Despite their linguistic, cognitive, and social potential, many ELsâ€"who account for more than 9 percent of enrollment in grades K-12 in U.S. schoolsâ€"are struggling to meet the requirements for academic success, and their prospects for success in postsecondary education and in the workforce are jeopardized as a result. Promoting the Educational Success of Children and Youth Learning English: Promising Futures examines how evidence based on research relevant to the development of DLLs/ELs from birth to age 21 can inform education and health policies and related practices that can result in better educational outcomes. This report makes recommendations for policy, practice, and research and data collection focused on addressing the challenges in caring for and educating DLLs/ELs from birth to grade 12.

As teachers grapple with the challenge of a new, bigger and more challenging school curriculum, at every key stage and phase, success can feel beyond our reach. But what if there were 50,000 small solutions to help us bridge that gap? In Closing the Vocabulary Gap, Alex Quigley explores the increased demands of an academic curriculum and how closing the vocabulary gap between our ‘word poor’ and ‘word rich’ students could prove the vital difference between school failure and success. This must-read book presents the case for teacher-led efforts to develop students' vocabulary and provides practical solutions for teachers across the curriculum, incorporating easy-to-use tools, resources and classroom activities. Grounded in the very best available evidence into reading development and vocabulary acquisition, Closing the Vocabulary Gap sets out to: help teachers understand the vital role of vocabulary in all learning; share what every teacher needs to know about reading (but was afraid to ask); unveil the intriguing history of words and exactly how they work; reveal the elusive secrets to achieve spelling success; provide strategies for vocabulary development for all teachers of every subject and phase. With engaging anecdotes from the author’s extensive personal teaching experience woven throughout, as well as accessible summaries of relevant research, Alex Quigley has written an invaluable resource suitable for classroom teachers across all phases, literacy leaders and senior leadership teams who wish to close the vocabulary gap.

Teachers make a difference. The success of any plan for improving educational outcomes depends on the teachers who carry it out and thus on the abilities of those attracted to the field and their preparation. Yet there are many questions about how teachers are being prepared and how they ought to be prepared. Yet, teacher preparation is often treated as an afterthought in discussions of improving the public education system. Preparing Teachers addresses the issue of teacher preparation with specific attention to reading, mathematics, and science. The book evaluates the characteristics of the candidates who enter teacher preparation programs, the sorts of instruction and experiences teacher candidates receive in preparation programs, and the extent that the required instruction and experiences are consistent with converging scientific evidence. Preparing Teachers also identifies a need for a data collection model to provide valid and reliable information about the content knowledge, pedagogical competence, and effectiveness of graduates from the various kinds of teacher preparation programs. Federal and state policy makers need reliable, outcomes-based information to make sound decisions, and teacher educators need to know how best to contribute to the development of effective teachers. Clearer understanding of the content and character of effective teacher preparation is critical to improving it and to ensuring that the same critiques and questions are not being repeated 10 years from now.
