Yesterday I wrote a post about a bunch of recent research papers that have come out about teaching English Language Learners.
What might be the most important one, at least for those of us in California, was omitted from that post.
The California Legislature and Governor are supposedly making 2008 the Year of Education. A group of foundations, at the state’s request, financed studies that are designed to get the ball rolling.
One of them specifically relates to English Language Learners.
Resources For English Learner Education was released last week. I haven’t had a chance to go through it that carefully, but, at first glance, the recommendations don’t look half bad. I’ll have to study it more carefully, though.
