Description

Growing research shows that many children from immigrant and refugee families are not doing well in school, due in part to linguistic and cultural disadvantages. Teaching dual-language learners requires cultural sensitivity, an understanding of language acquisition, and intentional teaching strategies. Combining research and techniques, this resource helps early childhood educators support dual-language learners as they develop the skills necessary for school readiness and success. AngEle Sancho Passe, an early childhood education consultant and writer, is trilingual and has worked with many programs serving dual-language learners. She is the author of Is Everybody Ready for Kindergarten?
