Supporting   Second Language Learning

Our classrooms are filled with students who come from diverse backgrounds.  When we get to know our students and their families, we strengthen the home-school connection, which research has reported leads to increased student achievement.   Using information gained the textbook readings and the required article, Can Preschool Children be Taught a Second Language?, explain strategies that effectively support students who are learning a second language.  You can use the textbook andthe recommended article, Responding to Linguistic and Cultural Diversity, to support your discussion.
Your 300-350 word post should be formatted to include the following in order:

  • Three ways to support children learning a second      language in the classroom
  • Two ways to support the families of children learning a      second language
  • One example of a resource you can use to help plan for      children learning a second language, with a summary and justification of      your choice
  • One question you still have about learning a second      language

Refer to Chapter 4 of the text and additional resources, and draw from your own insights.  Citations must be properly formatted in APA style.
Guided Response:  After reading several posts, respond to at least two classmates, and address the question they still have about learning a second language.  You do not necessarily need to provide them with an answer, but you may want to provide information related to what you have learned.
