That's why it's so critically important that teachers attend to both content and language development when introducing new subject matter, especially for English learners. Here's your opportunity to get started tomorrow and every day thereafter: Alison L. Bailey and Margaret Heritage's all-new Progressing Students' Language Day by Day. What's so utterly groundbreaking about this book is Bailey and Heritage's Dynamic Language Learning Progression (DLLP) process: research-based tools for obtaining much deeper insight into a student's language development progress, then for identifying the most appropriate instructional steps to elevate language proficiency and content knowledge. Step by step, Bailey and Heritage descrive how to: engage with students to advance their development of sophisticated, high-leverage language features for explaining content ; use the DLLP approach to formative assessment, and then plan your teaching in response to assessment evidence; examine words, sentences, and discourse--the three dimensions of language that are part of the DLLP process for cultivating language development; discover how leadership support and communities of practice (CoPs) can facilitate a successful and sustainable implementation of the DLLP process. Listen more closely and uncover new ways to advance content learning with Progressing Students' Language Day by Day directly by your side--back cover.
