about

Today’s public schools are brimming with students who are not only new to English but who also have no schooling or a large break in their schooling. These students create unique challenges for teachers and administrators.

 

This handbook is a welcome new resource for secondary teachers and administrators working in areas with burgeoning immigrant populations, as well as ESL instructors and researchers. The book addresses some of the many issues facing the subpopulation of English language learners who have limited or interrupted formal schooling, helping dedicated teachers and administrators to meet this subpopulation’s highly specific literacy development and content-area knowledge needs.

 

Meeting the Needs of Students with Limited or Interrupted Schooling is grounded in research but goes beyond it to offer practical guidance on fostering the success of students from limited or interrupted schooling backgrounds by providing student case studies, model programs and classes, and helpful teaching techniques and tips.
