Making Content Instruction Accessible for English Language Learners
This chapter presents ideas and strategies to help teachers optimize the education of English language learners in subject matter instruction. The potential to teach language and to facilitate students' success in learning across content areas are addressed through four key instructional dimensions: communication-based instruction, content-based instruction, cognitive development, and study skills. Implications concerning appropriate instructional materials also are addressed.
