Linguistics for Teaching English in Multilingual Classrooms

Linguistics for Teaching English in Multilingual

The English language plays an increasingly important role in providing opportunities for intercultural communication and learning on the global platform. In this era, English is no longer a language owned by any particular linguistic community, but is a language that provides speakers with a voice to engage in global conversations. Linguistics for Teaching English in Multilingual Classrooms approaches teaching English from this global perspective with a deep appreciation for the rich linguistic and cultural resources our students bring into our classrooms. Through an introduction to the foundational concepts within the field of linguistics and practical strategies for classroom implementation, this book guides teachers in supporting and addressing the linguistic needs of our students from multilingual backgrounds.

Language and Learning in Multilingual Classrooms: A Practical Approach (Parents' and Teachers' Guides)

Language and Learning in Multilingual Classrooms: A Practical

This book is a research-based practical guide for educators who work with students whose linguistic and cultural background is different from their own. Illustrated with many practical examples of classroom activities, projects, and teaching strategies, the book is also an introduction to immigrant education for school administrators and educational planners in communities or regions that are in the process of developing plans and programs for newcomer students. Although the focus is on first-generation immigrant children, many of the recommended approaches and instructional strategies described in this book can be used or adapted for use with second-generation children and historical linguistic and cultural minorities, such as children from Aboriginal communities in North America or children of Roma background in Europe.

What If and Why?: Literacy Invitations for Multilingual Classrooms

What If and Why?: Literacy Invitations for Multilingual

Wouldn't it be great if you could create learning opportunities flexible enough to attend to each child's needs equally while making the most of the diverse resources, skills, and backgrounds each child brings to school? Now you can. In What If and Why? Katie Van Sluys offers a framework for building critical reading, and writing skills in multilingual classrooms. Through rigorous group projects called invitations, elementary students, including English language learners, are invited to investigate topics of their choice, developing language skills through inquiry processes like researching, reporting, and presenting, as well as through language-based artistic and technological media. As children mine the seemingly simple question at the heart of their invitations, they engage with the increasing complexity of the subject, deepen their critical-literacy abilities, and cultivate a community where respect and risk taking are valued. Van Sluys offers fifteen field-tested, cross-curricular invitations that you can add to your lesson plans right away or, better yet, use as a template for creating your own invitations. In addition, she goes inside the process, describing real classrooms that show not only the wonderful things students are capable of doing during invitations, but also w...

Teaching Content and Language in the Multilingual Classroom:

This book brings together research from six different countries across three continents where teacher educators and policy makers are addressing the under-preparation of content teachers to work effectively with multilingual learners.

All the research was conducted in countries that belong to OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) and the PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) enabling the reader to compare contexts and outcomes.This book will be of particular interest to academics, researchers, and post-graduate students in the fields of language education, teacher education, and education for multilingual learners.

Translanguaging with Multilingual Students: Learning from Classroom Moments

Translanguaging with Multilingual Students: Learning from Classroom

Looking closely at what happens when translanguaging is actively taken up to teach emergent bilingual students across different contexts, this book focuses on how it is already happening in classrooms as well as how it can be implemented as a pedagogical orientation. It extends theoretical understandings of the concept and highlights its promises and challenges. Using a Transformative Action Research design, six empirically grounded ethnographic case studies describe how translanguaging is used in lesson designs and in the spontaneous moves made by teachers and students during specific teaching moments. The cases shed light on two questions: How, when, and why is translanguaging taken up or resisted by students and teachers? What does its use mean for them? Although grounded in a U.S. context, and specifically in classrooms in New York State, Translanguaging with Multilingual Students links findings and theories to different global contexts to offer important lessons for educators worldwide.

Going Graphic: Comics at Work in the Multilingual

Comics are a natural for second language development. Their unique mix of abundant, comprehension-building visuals and authentic text readily engages learners, contextualizes language, and offers a window into the culture. Yet despite their obvious advantages, comics remain unfairly branded as inappropriate classroom reading material, misunderstood and woefully underutilized. No more. In Going Graphic teachers will find a comprehensive guide to embracing comics and effectively using them in any multilingual classroom. Building on the latest brain-based research, second language acquisition theory, and progressive literacy principles, Stephen Cary offers twenty-five proven activities for comics-based instruction in all classrooms, especially TESL/TEFL settings, and for all grade and English-proficiency levels. These activities help nonnative and native learners alike meet a broad range of content and English-language development standards. In fact, Cary has given you literally everything you need to start successfully integrating comics into your classroom tomorrow, including: an FAQ that dispels the myths about comics, tells you why they work, and answers your questions about using them field sketches from real classrooms that show you firsthand how to make comics an inte...

Melissa & Doug Countdown to Christmas Wooden Advent Calendar (Seasonal & Religious, Magnetic Tree, 25 Magnets)

Melissa & Doug Countdown to Christmas Wooden Advent

Add some kid-friendly holiday cheer and a charming yuletide ritual to your home with this wooden magnetic holiday tree! The set includes 24 magnetic ornaments plus a shining star for Christmas day--all of which fit neatly in the attached box at the base of the tree. Kids can pick a favorite design to place on the tree each day, following the numbered outlines to fill the tree right up to Christmas. They'll also love to switch, move, and rearrange the pieces to customize their very own tree countless times. Decorating your Countdown to Christmas Wooden Advent Calendar will not only become a highly-anticipated annual tradition, it can also be a great way to help promote and reinforce many developmental skills as children grow. Use the numbers on the tree to help young children with number recognition and to learn to count both forwards and backwards; as they get older, ask children to add the numbers in a row. Play games with the ornaments to help develop color recognition and memory skills. For example, have kids find all of the ornaments that have red but no green or name all of the colors on individual ornaments. Or, ask them to choose five ornaments and study them carefully; then, have them to close their eyes while you remove one ornament. Can they guess which one is missing? ...
