Teaching Emergent Bilingual Students : Flexible Approaches in an Era of New Standards Paperback / softback
Edited by C. Patrick Proctor, Alison G. Boardman, Elfrieda H. Hiebert
Recent educational reform initiatives such as the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) largely fail to address the needs--or tap into the unique resources--of students who are developing literacy skills in both English and a home language.
This book discusses ways to meet the challenges that current standards pose for teaching emergent bilingual students in grades K-8.
Leading experts describe effective, standards-aligned instructional approaches and programs expressly developed to promote bilingual learners' academic vocabulary, comprehension, speaking, writing, and content learning.
Innovative policy recommendations and professional development approaches are also presented.
