Words Their Way with English Learners helps teachers determine what their students bring with them from their home languages, where their instruction in English orthography should begin, and how best to move these students through their literacy development.
Words Their Way with English Learners uses proven, research-based word study development as a foundation to help English learners develop literacy skills. Chapters 1 through 3 introduces teachers of English Learners to the stages of spelling and reading development, the assessments to use, and the best ways to organize your classroom for word study. This new book also includes samples of student writing in Chinese, Korean, Arabic, and Spanish throughout these early chapters to contextualize the assessment information.
