Product Overview

Books in the Teaching English Language Learners Across the Curriculum Series are written specifically for pre- and in-service teachers who may not have been trained In ELI_ techniques, but still find themselves facing the realities and challenges of today's diverse classrooms and learners. Each book provides simple and straightforward advice on how to teach ELLs through a given subject area, and how to teach content to ELLs who are at different levels of English language proficiency than the rest of their class. Authored by both language and content area specialists, each volume arms readers with practical, teacher-friendly strategies, and subject-specific techniques.

Written for prospective and practicing visual arts, music, drama, and dance educators committed to the arts and education, Teaching the Arts to Engage English Language Learners offers guidance for engaging ELLs, alongside all learners, through artistic thinking. By paying equal attention to visual art, music, drama, and dance education, this book articulates how arts classrooms can create rich and supportive contexts for ELLs to grow socially, academically, and personally. The making and relating, perceiving and responding, and connecting and understanding processes of artistic thinking, create the terrain for rich curricular experiences. These processes also create the much-needed spaces for ELLs to gain communicative practice, skill, and confidence. This book offers ideas and suggestions for ways in which teachers may create the classroom conditions for this learning and growth to take place. The practical, teacher-friendly strategies and techniques included in the book will prove effective, not only with ELLs, but with all students.
