A Course for Teaching English Learners (CTEL Handbook) offers strategies to equip teachers to work with English language learners, balancing fundamental principles with practical classroom techniques. This book offers in a single volume a wealth of background principles underlying the cultural, linguistic, and sociocultural contexts and foundations of learning and by providing a comprehensive framework that doesn't only focus on reading and writing. Provisions in the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) call for yearly accountability in English language growth for language-minority students. The CTEL Handbook addresses the new focus on testing procedures, as well as adaptation for English learners during the test-taking process. Throughout, Lynne Diaz-Rico provides the necessary background knowledge needed to educate English learners and also includes a variety of classroom methods for English language development in listening, speaking, reading, writing, and computer-assisted instruction. --From publisher's description.Crosscultural, language, and academic development handbook (3rd ed.).
