It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Language and Learning in Multilingual Classrooms
Subtitle: A Practical Approach
Written By: Elizabeth Coelho
Series Title: Parents' and Teachers' Guides

This book is a research-based practical guide for educators who work with
students whose linguistic and cultural background is different from their own.
Illustrated with many practical examples of classroom activities, projects, and
teaching strategies, the book is also an introduction to immigrant education for
school administrators and educational planners in communities or regions that
are in the process of developing plans and programs for newcomer students.
Although the focus is on first-generation immigrant children, many of the
recommended approaches and instructional strategies described in this book
can be used or adapted for use with second-generation children and historical
linguistic and cultural minorities, such as children from Aboriginal communities
in North America or children of Roma background in Europe.
