For any pre- or in-service mainstream teacher learning how to teach the English Language Learners or world language students in their classrooms—or those who simply want to get better at it—here is an interactive approach that’s packed with engaging features, opportunities for reflection, important new ideas and suggestions, and a number of ways to better connect to professional development standards like the Common Core Standards and WIDA.


Content-Based Second Language Teaching and Learning gives readers opportunities to interact with the material; reflect and consult with colleagues, partners, and classrooms; revisit their responses; and get assistance from accompanying PowerPoint presentations online that focus on the key concepts of each chapter. Packed with practical, how-to ideas and techniques culled from two critical fields of study—psycholinguistics and socio-cultural—it offers today’s teachers more methodological approaches to teaching in ESL settings than virtually any other book on the market.
