Today's public schools are brimming with students who are not only new to English but who also have limited or interrupted schooling. These students, referred to as SLIFE (or SIFE), create unique challenges for teachers and administrators. Like its predecessor, this book is grounded in research and is designed to be an accessible and practical resource for teachers, staff, and administrators who work with students with limited or interrupted formal education. Chapters 3-5 focus on classroom instruction, but others address issues of concern to administrators and staff too. For example, Chapter 6 explores different program models for SLIFE instruction, but the planning and commitment to creating a successful program require the involvement of many across the school community, not just teachers. This edition features case studies, model programs, and teaching techniques and tips; also included is a new chapter focused on the Mutually Adaptive Learning Paradigm (MALP (R)). A major theme of this new edition is moving school personnel away from a deficit perspective, when it comes to teaching SLIFE, and toward one of difference. The goal is to help all stakeholders in the school community create and foster inclusion of, and equity for, a population that is all too often marginalized, ignored, and underserved.

"Breaking New Ground "builds on the introduction to SLIFE presented in "Meeting the Needs of Students with Limited or Interrupted Schooling" (University of Michigan Press, 2009). "Breaking New Ground "introduces readers to and engages them in the implementation of an instructional model that has been developed over many years of working with SLIFE. Central to the instructional model and the practices presented in this book is the belief that teaching students with limited or interrupted education should in no way be considered remedial. This book provides a complete presentation of the MALP (Mutually Adaptive Learning Paradigm) instructional model from theory to practice and guides readers to reflect on each element of the model, learn why and how it is essential and effective, and determine how they can use it in their own teaching of SLIFE.

The primary purpose of this book is to provide science teacher educators with exemplars of professional development programs designed to prepare school teachers to effectively help language learners in science classrooms simultaneously gain language proficiency and conceptual understanding. To this end, this book examines seventeen science teacher preparation programs that span a wide variety of grade levels (elementary, middle, and secondary), countries (Italy, Luxemburg, Spain, UK, and US), and linguistic contexts (English as a Second Language, English as a Foreign Language, trilingual classrooms, and teaching deaf children science through sign language). The book is divided into three main parts. Each part consists of chapters that illustrate a common, cross-cutting theme in science teacher preparation in content-based second language acquisition, namely pre-service teacher preparation, in-service teacher preparation, and international perspectives. Each part provides many insights on the similarities and differences in the professional development approaches used to prepare science teaching with varied amounts of instructional experience help students in different parts of the world overcome linguistic barriers while simultaneously learning concepts central to science. Bringing together researchers from various academic backgrounds (science education, TESOL, and Applied Linguistics), attention is given to varied facets of the intersection of science and language learning in the specific context of school teacher preparation.

An overview of a new curriculum model to teach English to SLIFE students, including a set of tried-and-proven strategies for teaching academic language, in reading, speaking, listening, and writing. While the existing landscape of resources provides some guiding principles for working with SLIFE, when it comes to the reality of teaching on a daily basis, educators are often left in the dark. The current resources are either non-existent or inappropriate for SLIFE at the secondary level, leaving educators completely unequipped to help their SLIFE face the demands of the Common Core standards and meet graduation requirements (especially related to passing standardized tests). Our book places great emphasis on practical, ready-to-use resources that can be implemented in all content-areas, challenging educators to look past the "limit" in SLIFE and see these students as unlimited in their potential. This book will enable readers to not only effectively address the needs of their SLIFE but provide them with rigorous academic opportunities, aligned with the demands of the Common Core Standards. Includes a sample unit for teachers to adapt in their classroom along with photocopiable resources.

Making the Transition to Classroom Success

Features a chapter on flipped classrooms! Learners with no, minimal, or limited exposure to formal education generally do not share the expectations and assumptions of their new setting; as a result, they are likely to find themselves confounded by the ways in which the language and content are presented, practiced, and assessed in Western-style educational settings. Institutions and teachers must tailor therefore their instruction to this population. Making the Transition to Classroom Success: Culturally Responsive Teaching for Struggling Language Learners examines how understanding secondary and adult L2 learners’ educational paradigm, rooted deeply in their past experiences and cultural orientations, provides a key to the solution to a lack of progress. Making the Transition to Classroom Success builds on and expands on two earlier books, Meeting the Needs of Students with Limited or Interrupted Formal Schooling and Breaking New Ground: Teaching Students with Limited or Interrupted Formal Education in U.S. Secondary Schools. These previous books focused specifically on a subset of struggling L2 learners--those with limited or interrupted formal education (SLIFE) in U.S. secondary schools—and detailed the instructional model (MALP). Making the Transition broadens the applications of the MALP model to include academic thinking tasks, flipped classrooms, project design, and rubrics.

The purpose of this study was to find out how professional development and training for teachers of English Learners can meet the complex needs of these students. Specifically, it addressed the gaps in teacher training and sought to identify further supports helpful in giving additional information in their instruction of ELs, specifically students with limited or interrupted formal education and adult ELs. The research question framing this study asked: What professional development opportunities can be provided to SEI (Structured English Immersion) and ELM (English Language Mainstream) teachers to help secondary students bridge the gap from SEI to ELM classes and achieve comparably to grade-level peers? Growing English Learner populations, including newcomers entering high school with limited proficiency, exacerbate the need for further training for teachers that addresses the academic, social emotional, and contextual needs of English Learners. The study was a mixed methods study surveyed ten teachers and selected four for in-depth interviews. A t-test analyzed the data. Findings indicated that neither English Language Development nor English Language Mainstream teachers had adequate training provided to meet their needs and could not address the needs of their students with their current training. Teachers identified time and ongoing support as key factors in effective professional development. Additionally, collaboration and ongoing reflection played a significant role in the effectiveness of new approaches presented in professional development. Overall, there is a need for further research into the application of the Mutually Adaptive Learning Paradigm as a whole-school approach as well as detailed tracking of the SLIFE.

Much contemporary scholarship on fathers comes from a deficit model, focusing on men's inadequacies as parents. This volume goes beyond a deficit model of fatherhood to what the editors term a `generative fathering perspective'. This approach sees the work fathers do for their children in terms of caring for and contributing to the life of the next generation. Following a description of generative fathering, placing it in contrast to the role-inadequacy perspective of fatherhood, the contributors elaborate on generative fathering in terms of gender, ethnicity and historical perspectives. They present research that helps readers to understand generative fathering in challenging life circumstances, such as special-needs child
