The language education of minority children;: Selected readingsCited by: 7. Based on Improving Schooling for Language-Minority Children, a comprehensive study published inthis book summarizes for teachers and education policymakers what has been learned over the past three decades about educating such students.

It discusses a broad range of educational issues: how students learn a second language; how reading. Language education – the process and practice of teaching a second or foreign language – is primarily a branch of applied linguistics, but can be an interdisciplinary field.

There are four main learning categories for language education: communicative competencies, proficiencies, cross-cultural experiences, and multiple literacies.

Promote expansion of access to high-quality bilingual education that provides linguistically competent education to children. Educate the public and policymakers about the consequences of increasing ethnic and racial segregation to the educational experiences of ethnic and racial minority children.

Issues in language-minority education must be addressed in the work of offices and agencies beyond OBEMLA, as well as that of states and foundations. Moreover, if we cannot agree on what good research is and what the priorities are, and if the major funders cannot coordinate their efforts, pressing problems will remain inadequately addressed.

This chapter argues that bilingual education programs that educate students separately have become a problem for school systems and for thousands of language-minority children, and that integrated bilingual education is the solution. Millions of children have passed through separate bilingual programs in the United States over the last thirty.

The assumptions that undergird this debate miss an important reality: educational outcomes for minority children are much more a function of their unequal access to key educational resources.

If you’re searching for children’s books about diversity for toddlers, this is a must-have. Author Todd Parr always fills his books with whimsical characters, and It’s Okay to Be Different is no exception.

While the mastery of colonial languages may provide better economic opportunities, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child also states that minority children have the right to “use [their] own [languages]”.

The suppression of indigenous languages within the education system appears to contravene this treaty. That’s why fourth-grade teacher Stephanie recently wrote into the WeAreTeachers HELPLINE. asking for book suggestions for her students. “I’m looking for children’s books about celebrating differences, accepting others, being friendly to those who are different, and focusing on good things like that,” she writes.

In addition, human resources—librarians in local or school libraries, as well as professors in the field of education and library science—can be valuable resources in the collection-building process.

Finally, materials from minority children's household, such as photo albums and books written in their inherited language, are also rich. The Effects of Native Language Books on the Pre-Literacy Skill Development of Language Minority Kindergarteners.
