9780132855211: Languages and Learners: Making the Match: World Language Instruction in K-8 Classrooms and Beyond (5th Edition)

Both a methods text and a practical guide for schools and teachers, Languages and Learners is designed to help those preparing to teach languages, especially at the elementary and middle school K-8 levels; practitioners already involved with language teaching; and teachers, parents, and administrators engaged in the planning or evaluation process. In it the authors include the theoretical and practical elements that have been important in their own classroom practice. Intended as an entry-level resource to help new teachers get oriented to what is important and available in the profession, the book is based on scholarship, yet written by practitioners with practitioners in mind. Popular, accessible, and engaging, Languages and Learners is a classic in the field, now updated to include a new organization around the TELL (Teaching Effectiveness for Language Learning) Framework; new examples and illustrations of the concepts; new insights from guest contributors; and new coverage of today’s important issues, such as technology in the classroom, assessment, differentiated instruction, the Common Core State Standards, and more.

Review:

Languages and Children: Making The Match, New Languages for Young Learners, Grades K-8 is the must-have textbook for early language learning courses due to its pragmatic approach, current methodology, and understanding of the teaching and learning of young learners." - Anne Cummings Hlas, University of Wisconsin Eau Claire


"For teaching elementary foreign language methods, it is the best on the market." - Fran Meuser, Oakland University

"There are so many concrete and useful ideas, activities, games, checklists, etc. Having taught numerous teacher training methods courses, I know that students are always clamoring for more practical ideas; ideas/activities/tasks that they can use in their future classroom. This text is full of these" - Elvis Wagner, Temple University
