One Child, Two Languages

One Child, Two Languages : A Guide for Early Childhood Educators of Children Learning English as a Second Language

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. All chapters have been updated and a few have been expanded. The largest area of supplementation is in the chapter on assessment, an area of great interest among early childhood educators. 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.
