Using Multiple Languages for Learning: Evidence-Based Strategies for Teachers 1e (Print)
Most sub-Saharan African countries are multilingual. Hence, multilingualism is a feature of many schools and classrooms. An additive approach to multilingualism has been proven to be the most appropriate in this context. It is therefore important to demonstrate how multilingualism could be productively utilised to promote learner engagement and facilitate learning. The book focuses on using multiple languages as resources for teaching and learning in multilingual classrooms and highlights strategies for using multilingualism as a resource.
The book is divided into 3 sections: the first section is theoretical and describes the theoretical foundations of multilingualism in education and the promotion of additive multilingualism; the second section presents case studies to demonstrate evidence-based strategies for learner and learning support, and the final section provides sample lesson plans in different content areas that are suitable for teaching in multilingual classrooms.
