Bring classroom content to life for multilingual learners
In this eagerly anticipated revision of their bestselling book, authors Diane Staehr Fenner, Sydney Snyder, and Meghan Gregoire-Smith share dynamic, research-backed strategies that every educator of multilingual learners (MLs) can add to their repertoire. Including more of what educators loved from the first edition—authentic classroom examples, a wide variety of research-based instructional strategies, and practical tools to implement across grade levels and content areas—this is the ultimate practical guide to unlocking the potential of MLs in K-12 classrooms.
With fresh graphics and eye-catching colors, this thoroughly revised edition also includes:
- Considerations for newcomers and students with interrupted or no formal education (SLIFE)
- An added chapter on building scaffolded instruction and peer learning opportunities into MLs’ academic reading and writing activities
- Additional opportunities for reflection and application
- A new unit planning template aligned with research-based instructional practices, including a completed example unit
Situated within five core beliefs that frame the must-haves for MLs’ equitable and excellent education, Unlocking Multilingual Learners' Potential is a guide to research-based practices and a toolbox of strategies every educator can implement to make content accessible and increase language proficiency among MLs.
