Praised for its strong research base, engaging style, and inclusion of specific teaching ideas, the Fifth Edition comprehensively examines oral language, vocabulary, writing, reading, and writing/content-based instruction in English for grades K-12 students. 

 

This Fifth Edition of Peregoy & Boyle's best-selling book continues the strengths of the Fourth Edition with its comprehensiveness and accessibility, providing a wealth of practical strategies for promoting literacy and language development in ELLs (K-12). Unlike many books in this field, Reading, Writing and Learning in ESL takes a unique approach by exploring contemporary language acquisition theory (as it relates to instruction) and providing suggestions and methods for motivating ELLs’ English language, literacy and content area learning.

From the Back Cover:

Reading, Writing, and Learning in ESL Gets Better and Better:

Tailored for the needs of all English language learners, the fifth edition of Reading, Writing, and Learning in ESL combines the strengths of the fourth edition with new teaching ideas for differentiated instruction and assessment, vocabulary development, and standards-based curriculum development.

 

This new edition continues to balance comprehensiveness and accessibility, providing a wealth of practical strategies for promoting literacy for English learners in the ESL, bilingual, and general education classrooms. The authors weave authentic vignettes and real-life scenarios into each chapter to illustrate concepts, enhance readability, and make the text user-friendly. Reading, Writing, and Learning in ESL takes a unique approach by exploring contemporary language acquisition theory as it relates to instruction, and by providing tips and guidelines designed to help teachers motivate and inspire their students.

 

Reviewers Praise the New Edition

“The chapter introductions and summaries are clear, concise, and well-written. They are crafted in a way that facilitates comprehension and review of key concepts. The scenarios from teaching situations are outstanding and help to bring a strong applied component to the text.”

-Deanna Nisbet, Regent University, Virginia

 

“I do not feel that there are any other texts that compare to this text. There are several others that minimally cover the topics, however, no others provide the coverage and variety of the Peregoy and Boyle.”

-Dorothy Craig, Middle Tennessee State University

 

“The summary (with a vignette), suggestions for further reading (annotative bibliography), and activities at the end of each chapter are very appropriate. The practical activities, in particular, raise questions and require students to consider issues outside their immediate classroom.”

-John Battenburg, California Polytechnic State University
