Whole Language for Second Language Learners

Whole Language for Second Language Learners, Yvonne S. Freeman and David E. Freeman.
Second language students of all ages will benefit from a whole language approach, say the authors. In addition to a general consideration of the subject, the Freemans provide examples of teachers applying whole language across different grade levels and with students from a variety of linguistic and cultural backgrounds. The volume also analyzes traditional methods of teaching a second language from a whole language perspective. Intended for ESL and bilingual teachers and teacher educators.

Student Voice

Student Voice: Motivating Students Through Empowerment, James H. Johnson.
How can today's students be motivated to do well in school? One answer might be to give them ownership in the educational process by giving them a “voice.” This bulletin explores issues surrounding student empowerment, including student governments and developing other plans for involvement.
