5.0 out of 5 stars Scaffolding Language Scaffolding Learning
Just to let you know that this book was written by Pauline Gibbons with a foreword by Jim Cummins.A great text written in easy to read non-jargon speak for those of us who teach ESL children (and who doesn't these days)in the mainstream classroom.Great food for thought here.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rather disappointed with this book after some highly enthusiastic recommendations
Rather disappointed with this book after some highly enthusiastic recommendations. Perhaps my expectations were too high. It presents a lot of conventional literacy strategies that sync with a fair few practices from the National Strategies work, for those familiar with those literacy developments in the UK education system.

This review is from: Scaffolding Language, Scaffolding Learning: Teaching Second Language Learners in the Mainstream Classroom (Paperback)
This book is simply a must-read for all ESL/EAL teachers, all mainstream teachers with any diversity in their school (i.e. ALL teachers) and school planners/policy makers/principals.
