Connecting Content and Academic Language for English Learners and Struggling Students, Grades 2-6
What makes this book unlike any other is the detailed guidance it provides to:
-Help students advance from social to academic language
-Encourage verbal expression in the classroom
-Plan language arts, social studies, and science lessons that connect language and content
-Use shared reading and writing, read alouds, and conversation to teach language skills
Hands-on tools include graphic organizers, sample lesson plans, concept maps, semantic webbing, word walls, and worksheets – everything teachers need to help emergent bilingual and struggling students master the academic language they need to excel in school.
