Książka - 'How the ELL Brain Learns' David A.Sousa
Teachers are more likely to succeed if they have a deeper understanding of the challenges students face in trying to learn English and course content simultaneously. How the ELL Brain Learns combines current research on how the brain learns language with strategies for teaching English language learners in K-12 classrooms. Award-winning author and brain research expert David A. Sousa describes the linguistic reorganization needed to acquire another language after the age of 5 years. He supplements this information with immediately applicable tools, including
- A self-assessment pretest for gauging your understanding of how the brain learns languages
- Ready-to-use brain-compatible strategies for teaching English learners across the curriculum
- An entire chapter about how to detect English language learning problems, with sections on the social, cultural and physical causes
Each chapter features teaching tips that translate the research into step-by-step classroom applications. Also included are intervention strategies to use with struggling ELLs, including methods for working with older students.
