DESCRIPTION

In schools where many children are learning English as a second language, what should be the goals for literacy learning? How can teachers ensure all children can achieve them? This book results from a study in four inner-city multi-ethnic schools. The authors show how children used literacy skills as both communication and learning tools, and set the discoveries in a wide theoretical framework. The book includes case histories of innovative classroom practices and should be of use to those on pre- and in-service teaching courses, as well as for practising teachers.
