Developing Reading and Writing in Second-Language Learners
Lessons From the Report of the National Literacy Panel on Language-Minority Children and Youth
Diane August and Timothy Shanahan, editors
This accessible text summarizes the findings of the U.S. National Literacy Panel on Language-Minority Children and Youth originally presented in Developing Literacy in Second-Language Learners. It describes what is known from empirical research about the development of literacy in language-minority students, including the influences of environment, instruction, and assessment.
This summary of the full report is intended for teachers, administrators, and researchers and for use in teacher preparation, in-service, and staff-development programs that address educating English language learners.
