This practical book will help early childhood teachers (Pre-K-2) understand and respond to the multiple influences (school, home, and societal) that affect emergent bilingual children's academic achievement. The author explains the foundations of first- and second-language development and then provides teaching and curriculum practices specific to reading and English language arts. Chapters address incorporating first-language strengths, acquiring a second language, learning to read, vocabulary, comprehending and thinking with text and language, helping children persevere, and more. Practices for collaborating with families accompany each chapter. This book is designed to help teachers understand the underlying principles for practice so they can modify, develop, and adjust their practice to be most effective for the emergent bilingual children they teach. It is a valuable resource for developing bilingual programs, teacher preparation, and professional development.
