Teaching, Reading, and Writing in Spanish in the Bilingual Classroom

Front Cover
Teaching Reading and Writing in Spanish in the Bilingual Classroom brings theory to life by providing concrete, step-by-step suggestions to bilingual teachers for ways to help their students develop full literacy in two languages. For example, the authors offer checklists to help evaluate effective reading and writing instruction. They also include English language development lessons with appropriate literature resources to show how teachers can help transition students from Spanish reading and writing into English. A strong and unique feature of the book is its inclusion of lists of children's literature in Spanish. These lists come at the end of scenarios describing how teachers have organized meaningful curriculum around specific themes. The book is also rich in children's writing samples and suggestions for interactive activities.
