Research on students in kindergarten to grade 12 is analyzed to provide
this review of scientific research on the learning outcomes of students
with limited or no proficiency in English in U.S. schools. The primary
chapters of the book focus on these students' acquisition of oral language
skills in English, their development of literacy (reading & writing) skills
in English, instructional issues in teaching literacy, and achievement in
academic domains (i.e., mathematics, science, and reading). The book
provides a unique set of summary tables that supply details about each study.
