A hands-on guide to meeting the unique challenges of educating English language learners!

Bilingual education programs give students who are learning languages and content the opportunity to progress academically while gaining proficiency in English as well as their first language. Grounded in current research, this hands-on guide helps educators navigate the linguistic, academic, and cultural considerations of bilingual classrooms. 

Focusing on teachers′ day-to-day experiences, the authors present classroom-ready strategies such as 

  • Guidance on balancing instruction in two languages, including age-specific needs and social and academic language development
  • Tools for content-area teaching across the curriculum, including vocabulary development
  • Recommendations on appropriate assessments
  • Vignettes from schools and teachers illustrating solutions to challenges

Appropriate for a wide range of K-12 bilingual programs, Teaching in Two Languages is a comprehensive guide to language and content-area instruction for educators in any bilingual program or setting.
