"Whole Language for Second Language Learners offers demonstrative proof that the key to the success of bilingual students lies within a whole language approach. The purpose of the book is threefold:" "1. To show why whole language is important for all learners, especially second language learners." "2. To provide examples of teachers applying whole language across different grade levels and with students from a variety of linguistic and cultural backgrounds." "3. To analyze from a whole language perspective traditional methods of teaching a second language." "Each chapter contrasts a commonsense assumption about teaching second language students with whole language alternatives." "Readers will gain an understanding of how to apply whole language in classrooms where some or all of the students speak English as another language. Teachers who are already applying whole language will learn about ESL and bilingual methods, second language acquisition, and the importance of the first language and culture of all students. The book contains examples of teachers who have successfully applied whole language theory to their working methods with students of all ages and different backgrounds. Most useful is the inclusion of practical ideas for organizing curriculum on a daily or long-term basis and sample content area lessons consistent with a whole language approach and appropriate for all students, especially second language students." "Full of language stories and examples of student work, Whole Language for Second Language Learners is essential reading for ESL and bilingual teachers and teacher educators, as well as any teacher looking for whole language alternatives and ideas to use with ESL students in the classroom."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Teaching secondary students in the content areas is hard enough under the best of circumstances. When students are not well prepared academically and also lack academic literacy skills, the challenge can seem overwhelming. Fortunately, the Freemans help secondary content-area teachers provide these students with the academic support they very desperately need. -Robert J. Marzano Coauthor of Building Academic Vocabulary Many middle school and high school students are recent immigrants or long-term English language learners who struggle with the academic language needed to read content-area textbooks and write papers for their classes. Likewise, many native speakers of English find content-area classes a challenge. Secondary teachers have little time to teach academic reading and writing skills because they must cover a great deal of content in their social studies, science, math, or language arts classes. Academic Language for English Language Learners and Struggling Readers provides the information busy secondary teachers need to work effectively with English learners and struggling readers. It reports current research to answer key questions: Who are our older English language learners and struggling readers? What is academic language? How can middle and high school teachers help students develop academic language in the different content areas? This comprehensive and readable text by Yvonne and David Freeman (authors of Essential Linguistics) synthesizes recent demographic data on the kinds of English language learners and struggling readers who attend middle and high schools in increasing numbers. They flesh out the statistics with stories of students from different backgrounds. Then the Freemans examine academic language at different levels: the text level, the paragraph level, the sentence level, and the word level. For each, they provide examples of academic language and specific strategies teachers can use as they teach language arts, science, math, and social studies. They also analyze content-area textbooks, pointing out the difficulties they pose for students and suggesting ways to make texts more accessible to ELLs and struggling readers. Providing classroom examples, the Freemans explain how teachers can motivate and engage their students. They describe how teachers can teach language and content simultaneously by developing both language and content objectives. Academic Language for English Language Learners gives teachers the information and strategies they need to help all their students develop academic language.

Linguistics is much more than a study reserved for academicians. Linguistics has real-life applications to effective teaching-now more than ever. With the increased emphasis on phonemic awareness and phonics in the teaching of reading, teachers need to understand how language works. When teachers are familiar with basic linguistic concepts, they are better prepared to make decisions about how to teach reading, spelling, phonics, and grammar to all students, including English language learners.
