Abstract:

This volume brings together a broad range of academics, school-based
educators, and policymakers to address research, policy, and practice
issues related to improving the education of English language learners in
U.S. schools today. It emphasizes throughout that instructional
improvements cannot be achieved via curriculum alone--teachers are key to
improving the education of this large and growing population of students.
The focus is on the quality of preparation and development of pre-service
and in-service educators.

Contributors include leading educators and researchers in the field and
from nationally recognized professional development programs. Their
recommendations range from promising new professional development practices
to radical changes in current state and federal policy.

"Preparing Quality Educators for English Language Learners: Research,
Policy, and Practice" is an important resource to help teacher educators,
administrators, and policymakers address critical issues as they develop
programs for English language learners.

Message 2: Researching Second Language Classrooms: McKay
Date: 31-Jan-2006
From: Elizabeth Gangeri <Elizabeth.Gangerierlbaum.com>
Subject: Researching Second Language Classrooms: McKay


Title: Researching Second Language Classrooms
Series Title: ESL & Applied Linguistics Professional Series
Published: 2006
Publisher: Lawrence Erlbaum Associates
                http://www.erlbaum.com/

Author: Sandra Lee McKay, San Francisco State University
Paperback: ISBN: 0805853405 Pages: 192 Price: U.S. $ 24.50
Abstract:

This text introduces teachers to research methods they can use to examine
their own classrooms in order to become more effective teachers. Becoming
familiar with classroom-based research methods not only enables teachers to
do research in their own classrooms, it also provides a basis for assessing
the findings of existing research. McKay emphasizes throughout that what a
teacher chooses to examine will dictate which method is most effective.
Each chapter includes activities to help readers apply the methods
described in the chapter, often by analyzing research data.

"Researching Second Language Classrooms" is an ideal text for TESOL
research methods courses and an essential resource for inservice teachers
who wish to undertake classroom research.
