Solving problems in the teaching of literacy

PE1128

Sixteen American academics and educational consultants present 13 chapters for monolingual English-speaking elementary school teachers who work in mainstream classrooms that include non-native English language learners (ELLs); the text is also suitable for graduate, undergraduate, and inservice courses focusing on literacy instruction for ELLs. The teacher-friendly summarization of current research on literacy development for ELLs includes discussion of literacy development in a second language; culturally responsive instruction in multiethnic/multilingual classrooms; explicit language instruction; ELL assessment; key elements of reading instruction such as phonemic awareness, alphabet and phonics knowledge, fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary; and ways that white, monolingual English-speaking teachers can reflect on and adjust their current practices to better support the academic success of all of their students.
