Description

Teaching English Learners and Immigrant Students in Secondary Schools , written for traditional, non-ESL classroom teachers, is the most up-to-date text on teaching secondary English learners and newcomer immigrant students in the content areas.  Teachers will find it filled with practical, research-based approaches and strategies based in recent sociocultural theories on teaching and learning. It is organized around five principles to effective teaching and learning known as Commitments in Practice and emphasizes engaging English learners in academic communities of practice. 

 

This practical classroom resource helps teachers address the needs of students with non-parallel schooling, and immigrant English learners who are two or more years below grade level when they enter secondary school.  It addresses standards and high stakes testing, arguing that teachers need specialized knowledge to assess English learners in literacy and academic content. 

 

This text also features an introduction to the theoretical reasons for the commitments, which are contextualized within historical and political developments within education programs for English learners.  It then goes on to show how teachers can use the commitments in practice within real classroom settings for teaching English language arts, science, social studies, and math to English learners.
