Many Languages, One Classroom

Teaching Dual and English Language Learners


In classrooms across the country, teachers are encountering more children who are learning English, come from diverse backgrounds, and who speak a variety of languages. As challenging as this may be, a preschool teacher’s goal remains the same: to welcome all children and give them the best possible start in education and life. Even the most experienced teacher can feel unsure about meeting the unique needs of children from different language backgrounds. Many Languages, One Classroom applies the latest information about best practices to all aspects of a preschool program. From using lists of key words and visual aids to using body language and gestures, the strategies in this book are adaptable and easy to put into practice. Designed to fit any preschool curriculum, this book addresses state standards and benchmarks of standard quality programming.
