Download and read online Whole Language for Second Language Learners in PDF and EPUB "Whole Language for Second Language Learners offers demonstrative proof that the key to the success of bilingual students lies within a whole language approach. The purpose of the book is threefold:" "1. To show why whole language is important for all learners, especially second language learners." "2. To provide examples of teachers applying whole language across different grade levels and with students from a variety of linguistic and cultural backgrounds." "3. To analyze from a whole language perspective traditional methods of teaching a second language." "Each chapter contrasts a commonsense assumption about teaching second language students with whole language alternatives." "Readers will gain an understanding of how to apply whole language in classrooms where some or all of the students speak English as another language. Teachers who are already applying whole language will learn about ESL and bilingual methods, second language acquisition, and the importance of the first language and culture of all students. The book contains examples of teachers who have successfully applied whole language theory to their working methods with students of all ages and different backgrounds. Most useful is the inclusion of practical ideas for organizing curriculum on a daily or long-term basis and sample content area lessons consistent with a whole language approach and appropriate for all students, especially second language students." "Full of language stories and examples of student work, Whole Language for Second Language Learners is essential reading for ESL and bilingual teachers and teacher educators, as well as any teacher looking for whole language alternatives and ideas to use with ESL students in the classroom."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Download and read online Understanding Semantics in PDF and EPUB This series provides approachable, yet authoritative, introductions to all the major topics in linguistics. Ideal for students with little or no prior knowledge of linguistics, each book carefully explains the basics, emphasising understanding of the essential notions rather than arguing for a particular theoretical position. Understanding Semantics offers a complete introduction to linguistic semantics. The book takes a step-by-step approach, starting with the basic concepts and moving through the central questions to examine the methods and results of the science of linguistic meaning. Understanding Semantics unites the treatment of a broad scale of phenomena using data from different languages with a thorough investigation of major theoretical perspectives. It leads the reader from their intuitive knowledge of meaning to a deeper understanding of the use of scientific reasoning in the study of language as a communicative tool, of the nature of linguistic meaning, and of the scope and limitations of linguistic semantics. Ideal as a first textbook in semantics for undergraduate students of linguistics, this book is also recommended for students of literature, philosophy, psychology and cognitive science.
