Today's language arts classrooms increasingly include students for whom English is a second language. Teaching Language Arts to English Language Learners provides readers with the comprehensive understanding of both the challenges that face ELLs and ways in which educators might address them in the language arts classroom. The authors offer proven techniques that teachers can readily use to teach reading, writing, grammar, and vocabulary as well as speaking, listening, and viewing skills. A complete section is also devoted to ways teachers can integrate all five strands of the language arts curriculum into a comprehensive unit of study with meaningful accommodations for ELLs. An annotated list of web and print resources completes the volume, making this a valuable reference for language arts teachers to meet the challenges of including all learners in effective instruction. Special features include: over a dozen learning activities for each of the main areas of the language arts curriculum engaging vignettes vividly illustrate real-life interactions of teachers and ELLs in the classroom graphs, tables, and illustrations provide additional access points to the text in clear, meaningful ways.
