Based on theory, research and practice, it includes activities, exercises, and practical strategies for building vocabulary, grammar, and language learning approaches routinely into math, science, history, and language arts lessons.Major topics and themes include:--What is academic language and how does it differ by content area?--How can language-building activities support content understanding?--How can students be assisted in using language more effectively?--How can academic language usage be modeled routinely in the classroom?--How can lesson planning and assessment support academic language development?
