Description

Word study can be a powerful instructional method for teachers and their English learning students.  With this text, you can evaluate students’ language needs.  Empower your students to grasp this new language at the word level, build skills to understand how English differs from their primary language, and provide them with the skills to predict word meaning through spelling.  Words Their Way™ with English Learners, Second Edition, will help you build vocabulary, spelling, and word recognition skills in your English learners, giving them the foundation to master their new language.

 

One reality of today’s classrooms is the limited help available to teachers trying to support English learners’ literacy skills.  The educators and researchers who developed Words Their Way™ understand this challenge.  Their original text, a phenomenon in word study, provides the proven framework and application to allow students to develop literacy skills.  And now they apply this approach to teaching English learners.  Based on the same solid research, Words Their Way™ with English Learners, Second Edition, helps you determine what your students bring with them from their home languages, where their instruction in English orthography should begin, and how best to move these students through their development.

 

All new classroom videos, an enhanced assessment application tool available on PDToolkit for Words Their Way ™ with English Learners, as well as enhanced word sorts, picture sorts and games offer teachers even more tools that will enhance their word study instruction. With its clean new design, integrated media guide, and marginal notes that link readers to resources on the PDToolkit for Words Their Way ™ with English Learners, Words Their Way ™ with English Learners, Second Edition, provides a complete word study package.
