Full Description

With K-8 teachers in mind, Andrea Honigsfeld offers this user-friendly, accessible resource to address the diverse language and literacy proficiencies that exist in so many U.S. classrooms today. Andrea unpacks the five levels of language acquisition, based on the TESOL framework, and introduces practical strategies that can be applied across grade levels and content areas to support EL students’ academic language and literacy development.

With an emphasis on culturally and linguistically sustaining pedagogy, peer interaction, and scaffolding,  Andrea offers instructional practices organized into five predictable strands at each level of language acquisition:

  • Visual supports

  • Learning by doing

  • Oral language production

  • Reading supports

  • Writing supports

Filled with student vignettes, teacher and student work samples, and authentic classroom examples, Growing Language and Literacy will become every teacher’s guide to moving their English learners from one stage of language acquisition to the next.
