dc.description.abstract This document is a collection of general strategies and implications for the general education teacher with a student in her classroom who speaks English as a second language (ESL). With the number of ESL students continually on the rise, many teachers are finding themselves ill-prepared to teach these young children effectively. This thesis was designed to be a resource guide. Included are many practical strategies as well as contact information for various organizations that advocate for English language learners in the United States. The resource guide is an excellent starting point for teachers who wish to undertake more extensive research. The guide includes a definition of common terms, information about relevant legislation, reference to the ESL standards, general and continuing strategies for instruction, suggestions regarding assessment, and considerations for building partnerships between schools and ESL families.
