Many students, ranging from native English speakers to recent immigrants, need help in understanding and using the language of school. This book includes research-based instructional and assessment activities that content teachers can use to build students' abilities to understand and describe the many abstract concepts, higher-order thinking skills, and complex relationships in a discipline. The book emphasizes an approach that builds from students' existing ways of learning and communicating, helping them to think and talk as content area experts think and talk about math, science, history, and language arts.
