Product Description
Written expressly for teachers, the new edition of this accessible, highly readable resource moves beyond the basics of child development to describe the natural progression of second-language acquisition in young children. Teachers will learn how to create a supportive classroom environment for second-language learners with effective ways to measure progress, address individual differences, and work with parents while acknowledging the importance of children's home languages and cultures. This idea-packed handbook combines research findings with firsthand observations of linguistically and culturally diverse children. The book also includes information on cultural diversity and international adoption. A new tool helps educators monitor children's progress as they learn English as a second language.On the DVD, Patton Tabors shares information on teaching young children who are learning English as a second language. She presents a slide show to a live audience outlining key features discussed in her book, "One Child, Two Languages", discusses her research, and also provides practical strategies for working with this growing population, along with a question and answer period with the audience. This DVD will support use of the book in training but can also be used independently by anyone who works with bilingual children.
