Abstract

For many students in American schools today, the language of the classroom is not the language they use in their own homes. These students come from many different cultural and linguistic backgrounds. In addition to learning English, these students must also master the content of mainstream classes, such as math and science. Even if these students can use English for basic communication, the academic language required in a content classroom proves to be a much greater challenge.
