Ashford ECE 315 Week 2 Discussion 2 Supporting Second Language Learning
Supporting Second Language Learning. Our classrooms are filled with students who come from diverse backgrounds. When we get to know our students and their families, we strengthen the home- school connection, which research has reported leads to increased student achievement. Using information from
the textbook readings and the required article, Can Preschool Children be Taught a Second Language?, explain strategies that effectively support students who are learning a second language. You can use the textbook and the Responding to Linguistic and Cultural Diversity article to support your discussion.
Your 300-350 word post should be formatted to include the following in order:
Three ways to support children learning a second language in the classroom
Two ways to support the families of children learning a second language
One example of a resource you can use to help plan for children learning a second language, with a
summary and justification of your choice
One question you still have about learning a second language
Refer to Chapter 4 of the text and additional resources, and draw from your own insights. Citations must be properly formatted in APA style.
Guided Response: After reading several posts, respond to at least two classmates and address the question they still have about learning a second language. You do not necessarily need to provide them with an answer, but you may want to provide information related to what you have learned.
