Balancing Reading and Language Learning
A Resource for Teaching English Language Learners, K-5
Teaching reading to children in a language that is not their own is a daunting task. Combining the best classroom practices and research on teaching reading and language acquisition, Mary Cappellini integrates effective reading instruction with effective language instruction. Through the framework of a balanced reading program, she emphasizes the importance of constantly listening for and assessing children's language and reading strategies during read-aloud, shared reading, guided reading, and independent reading, including literature circles.
