New Language, New Literacy: Teaching Literacy to English Language Learners is a guide for teachers of English language learners who need help with basic reading and writing skills. Jill Sinclair Bell is internationally know in the second-language education field as a writer who combines excellent theoretical knowledge with the solid, practical experience that comes from years in the language classroom. In this book, she uses her experience to demystify a most challenging education scenario, by showing teachers how they can identify their learners' skills and needs even when there is no common language and little or no literacy to build on. Always clear and easy to follow, she guides teachers through the process of developing and adapting curriculum, identifying appropriate methodology, and delivering engaging lessons with a host of clear examples and useful practical ideas.

Whether you are an experienced ESL teacher working with a whole class of literacy learners, or a new volunteer helping a single individual,New Language, New Literacy will prove an invaluable asset, offering a critical blend of theorectical insight and practical methodology that will guide you through all aspects of the literacy classroom.
