Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject Pedagogy - Higher Education, grade: -, Endicott College, course: Language Diversity in Education, language: English, abstract: The world is changing rapidly; people around the world are more interconnected than ever. They travel to all parts of the globe and communicate with each other for business, politics, social, academic and private purpose. Trade, ideas, knowledge, and technology flow from place to place, and a common language is essential to maintaining and improving the stream of communication (Nwaila 1997). All these trends have sparked great interest of second language learning all over the world. It seems that in this era, the mastery of a second language especially English as a Second Language, which is regarded as an international language in common use, is extraordinarily necessary. Based on this reality, many researches, aiming at finding the most efficient and effective way of learning English, have been conducted. Bilingualism has always been a hot topic in teaching English as a foreign language (EFL) and English as a second language (ESL) because bilinguals are present in every country of the world, in every social class and in all age groups.

Introduces core principles of effective reading practice. Presented as a definitive checklist, these principles form the basis of much of the book and help teachers plan their reading curriculum and assess their teaching of reading easily and confidently. First, the authors introduce the checklist, then they present the theory of reading behind it. As the chapters progress, each item on the checklist is explained and illustrated in detail with examples of eight exemplary teachers who work effectively with mainstream, ESL, and bilingual students. Daily schedules, sample strategy lessons, and lists of literature at different grade levels--both elementary and secondary--help readers put the principles into practice. In the final chapter, the authors address some of the hard questions teachers, administrators, and parents raise about reading, including questions about phonics and phonemic awareness.
