Support dual-language learners as they develop the skills necessary for school readiness and success

For dual-language learners—children who are learning both English and a home language—the first eight years are crucial for building strong foundations for academic success. During this time, children acquire the early literacy skills needed to be ready for kindergarten, do well in elementary school, and thrive in the years beyond. Based on research and the author’s experience as a multilingual educator, Dual-Language Learners provides a thoughtful approach to help young children learn English, maintain their home language, and develop the skills necessary for school readiness and success.

Information about both the challenges of and best practices for teaching dual-language learners
Ideas to help you plan and assess your curriculum and environment, as well as the children’s learning
Strategies for communicating with families of dual-language learners and for supporting home languages
An explanation of how children develop their first and second languages
