DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

More than 50 million individuals will be forcibly displaced from their homes this year. Many will be resettled into other countries or cultures, including the United States. With specific regard to education, a growing sector of ELA instruction now caters to the unique needs of refugee and immigrant students. These “Newcomer” learners, as they are resettled into Westernized regions, require a tailored brand of education. The Newcomer Student is a field guide from the trenches. It is the product of one educational specialist’s experiences, observations, and research in the Newcomer ELA field. It is a tale of personal participation, linking grassroots to modern progressive protocol, a story of cultural exploration, stemming from Louise’s refugee teaching experiences, and an ongoing search to discover interpersonal peace and humanistic continuity.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Copublished with TESOL Press Newcomers need to draw on all their resources—intellectual, linguistic, cultural—as they make sense of new content and a new language. In this much-needed book, the authors marshal research and several decades of their own experience to provide instructional practices and activities that will help teachers develop newcomers as readers and writers of English and engage them in content learning across the curriculum. Equally important, they show how teachers can advocate for these vulnerable students, many of whom have experienced multiple challenges in their home countries or in the United States, including poverty, violence, and political persecution. With chapters on assessment and second-language acquisition as well as reading, writing, speaking, and content learning, their book is a timely and comprehensive guide for any K–8 educator whose classroom or school includes newcomer students.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

This book juxtaposes superdiversity with the reality of English-centricity in the United States, set against the long-standing challenges regarding migration and language policy in the US, most recently underlined by Donald Trump’s 2016 election win and subsequent aggressive and partially successful attempts to limit migration. The book explores the history, policies, and practices of an adolescent newcomer program in Central Ohio, in the US Midwest, that seeks to provide an equitable and engaging education to its students. It addresses, on the one hand, positive, progressive institutional responses, including an embrace of translanguaging and a willingness to acknowledge and build on students’ languacultural backgrounds. On the other hand, the book explores the effects of inconsistent, inefficient and sometimes nonsensical patterns in these responses. The book analyzes student outcomes and argues that, although some students are well-served by the program, tensions in the program lead to uneven, and even troubling, behavior and results, ranging from poor academic performance to dropping out. Finally, the book addresses ongoing evolutions and debates to the program and their potential to realize the program's aspirations.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

This book is a road map for teachers and school leaders who need to meet the needs of increasing numbers of Newcomers and other English Learners (ELs). The authors draw from years of experience in working with, listening to, and coaching administrators, teachers, and coaches nationwide to help you develop and implement an effective plan for your school. Beginning with the core belief that "getting to know the student is pivotal," the authors show how to address both the academic and the social needs of Newcomers to help them integrate and excel—from their first day of school. The main components of the plan are the following: - Identifying your students and assessing educational and socioemotional needs. - Identifying qualified teachers and staff. - Developing highly effective programs for Newcomers and other ELs. - Accelerating English learners' acquisition of language, literacy, and knowledge through proven classroom teaching techniques. - Supporting Newcomers' socioemotional well-being through classroom and administrative structures. - Designing, implementing, and sustaining professional development for all staff. If you already have a plan for integrating Newcomers and ELs, you can use the information in this book to assess and strengthen it and to learn more about resources for continued coaching and growth. Whether your school has a formal plan or not, the information in this practical guide can help your staff better collaborate to attend to the needs and build on the strengths of Newcomers and ELs in your school.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Recent immigrants and refugees — both children and their families — often struggle to adapt to Canadian education systems. For their part, educators also face challenges when developing effective strategies to help these students make smooth transitions to their new country. In Immigrant and Refugee Students in Canada, researchers join educators and social workers to provide a thorough and wide-ranging analysis of the issues at the preschool, elementary, secondary and post-secondary levels. By understanding these issues within the unique Canadian context, educators can work more effectively with newcomers trying to find their way. This book pursues three lines of inquiry: What are the main challenges that immigrant and refugee children and families face in the Canadian education system? What are the common aspects of successful intervention? What can we learn from the narratives of researchers, educators, social workers, and other frontline workers who work with immigrant and refugee families?

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Teaching English Learners from an asset perspective Too often in classrooms, English Learners are described by what they cannot do, rather than by what they can do. Particularly in mainstream classrooms in which teachers have little or no training in how to meet their needs, ELs are seen through a deficit lens. In No More Low Expectations for English Learners, esteemed EL researcher Jana Echevarria argues that teacher attitude affects student achievement, and describes what best practice methods for supporting ELs academic achievement look like. Julie Nora, an educator and advocate, offers strategies to provide the instructional supports ELs need for both language acquisition and content-area learning. Together, Julie and Jana provide a framework of understandings and practices to make you a more capable teacher of English Learners.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

"While the atmosphere and focus of education has changed to center strongly on standards and assessment, there is still room for programs that focus on meeting the needs of beginning level ELLs. In fact, it can be argued that this sense of desperation and frustration adds urgency to the creation of programs that help these students build academic skills and move into the mainstream as quickly as possible. Most schools can't afford to have students sitting in classes, lost and confused while they slowly develop language proficiency. Time has become the enemy and well-developed newcomer programs can help students adjust to their new surroundings and find academic success faster than traditional pullout classes. These programs can help insure that students do not become the victims of this current educational atmosphere and end up being `left behind'." In this unique, first-of-its-kind look at an increasingly popular educational model---the newcomer program---author Brenda Custodio brings over 25 years of ESL experience and nine years of newcomer program development to this practical resource. In it she shows what's needed to design and implement the program, prepare the site, develop the curriculum, interview and hire staff, and continually build a constantly evolving, successful newcomer program based on learners' needs.
