about

With Writing Between Languages, Danling Fu provides an effective alternative. She proves that by beginning with the literacy knowledge students bring from their native language and putting writing at the center of the curriculum, we can help them make a smoother transition to English while we support their academic literacy. With Writing Between Languages, you’ll learn to

  • understand the crucial and helpful role native literacy plays in building written English fluency
  • assess where English learners—including beginners—are in their development as writers
  • use code-switching and movement between languages to scaffold transitional writing—no matter whether you know a student’s home language
  • implement instructional strategies to support development in writing and other literacy and language skills in meaningful contexts.
