Description

Referred to by readers as “the greatest language book I have every read,” and touted as the best overview of basic principles and strategies for English language teaching, this widely used guide is a one-stop introduction to teaching English to speakers of other languages. In Strategies for Teaching English Learners, readers get a concise, yet comprehensible overview of the basic principles, practices and methods for educating English learners. A breakthrough in language teaching and learning, this thought-provoking text includes coverage of second-language-acquisition issues and techniques, as well as attention to such controversial topics as the influence of culture on schooling, the cultural practices of schooling, and the sociopolitical context of education.
