Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This book takes a literature-based approach to how children learn language and how it is taught in today's diverse K-12 classrooms. The material is based on the belief that literature offers the most effective instructional approach for English language learners. The book offers meaningful reading, writing, speaking, and listening activities, as well as new understandings about the forms and functions of written language. This is the first book that offers instructors guidance in expanding the range of materials they use for teaching ESL by going beyond the standard texts to include books of all kinds - children's literature, trade books, magazines, and other media. "Voices from the Classroom: Scenarios from K-12 classrooms with English language learners" are provided throughout the chapters, offering practical stories from teachers' points of view. K-12 Educators with diverse student populations.

Bought this book for a C&I grad class I was taking. It was well written and a good resource for ELA teachers to have on their shelves. I have pulled it many times this year for reference.
