by teachers for teachers, this is a practical introduction to
models and strategies employed in the teaching of English language
learners. Each chapter discusses several models and/or strategies by
focusing on particular methods. It gives the background of the method's
development, discusses practical examples and applications, provides
possible caveats and modifications, and offers a list for further
reading about the method.
The book is written to be of immediate use to
classroom teachers but will also be valuable as a supplementary
textbook. All methods discussed are currently being taught in Norland's
classes and implemented through the student teaching program at Luther
Strategies include: Grammar-based Approaches, The Silent Way,
Experiential Language Learning, Literature-based Approach, Family
Literacy, and many more.
