Learning to Learn in a Second Language has been written specifically for all teachers of children for whom English is a second language, although a great deal of what Pauline Gibbons has to say will be found to be equally illuminating and helpful by teachers of English speaking children. The book is based on the assumption that the classroom program is a major resource for language development, and that a responsive program takes into account the fact that children are not only learning a new language, but that they are learning in that language as well. It exemplifies current theories of second language development through a wide range of strategies and practical suggestions for the classroom teacher."--Back cover."@en ;
