Editorial Reviews


This volume is a veritable sequel to August and Hakuta’s Improving Schooling for Language Minority Children. For people in the field like me, this volume is a must read book.

Eugene Garcia
Arizona State University

This major federally-funded research synthesis is a comprehensive identification of the important issues in the effective teaching of language minority students.  The massive effort sheds light on many key questions.  More importantly, through its systematic inquiry, it exposes a large number of important questions that are unaddressed and require  research investments.  As such, the book is a blueprint for a long-term research agenda.

Kenji Hakuta
Founding Dean; University of California, Merced

“While there are many reasons that it is important, ultimately the value of this report is that it will contribute to an ongoing, national effort…to more fully understand and address the educational needs of language-minority children in an informed, evidence-based, intelligent, and compassionate manner. Our nation is now aware of its own changing demographics. This report, and the products it encourages and contributes to, should help us move beyond awareness to additional action.”

Peggy McCardle
National Institute of Child Health and Human Development

This peerless panel conducted an unprecedented and thorough review of the extant research on the development of literacy in second-language learners.

John Guthrie
University of Maryland

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent review of relevant research on the impact of English language reading acquisition in English language learners. This population is growing in America's public schools. If they are to become successful in the American educational system, teaching them to read and write in English is essential. This book is an important tool for teachers and other educators.
