Linguistics for K-12 Classroom Application

Linguistics for K-12 Classroom Application helps readers develop a practical understanding of phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics to support the language needs of English learners (ELs) in the K-12 mainstream classroom. Knowledge of these five areas enables teachers to create effective lessons for students from diverse cultural backgrounds and varying English proficiency levels. Classroom scenarios exemplify linguistic concepts through interactions between teachers and students. This tangible approach demystifies linguistics and allows readers to make connections to their own classrooms in order to focus on increasing ELs’ social and academic proficiency in English. The text includes research-based, ready-to-go activities for the K-12 classroom. This informative and engaging text is reader-friendly for the hands-on learner.
