Reading, Writing and Learning in ESL: A Resource Book for Teaching K-12 English Learners (with MyEducationLab) (5th Edition)
Suzanne F. Peregoy and Owen F. BoylePraised for its strong research base, engaging style, and inclusion of specific teaching ideas, the Fifth Edition comprehensively examines oral language, vocabulary, writing, reading, and writing/content-based instruction in English for grades K-12 students.    This Fifth Edition of Peregoy & Boyle's best-selling book continues the strengths of the Fourth Edition with its comprehensiveness and accessibility, providing a wealth of practical strategies for promoting literacy and language development in ELLs (K-12). Unlike many books in this field, Reading, Writing and Learning in ESL takes a unique approach by exploring contemporary language acquisition theory (as it relates to instruction) and providing suggestions and methods for motivating ELLs’ English language, literacy and content area learning. The book highlights content-based instruction and features differentiated instruction for English language learners.
Introduction to Linden Scripting Language for Second Life
Jeff HeatonThe Linden Scripting Language allows residents of the Second Life World to program the three dimensional objects around them. Without this programming objects built in Second Life are motionless and non-interactive. Adding a script enables an object to interact with the world around it. Second Life scripts allow objects such as cars, planes, amusement park rides, weapons and other entertainment devices to be created. This book teaches the beginning Second Life programmer to make use of the basics of the Linden Scripting Language. Language fundamentals, such as variables, loops, lists, events, functions and state machines are covered. The book then moves to more advanced topics such as user interaction and non-physical movement. Later chapters show how to use the Second Life physics engine to create vehicles.
The Language of Towns and Cities
Dhiru A. ThadaniThe final word on the language of urban planning and design. The Language of Towns and Cities is a landmark publication that clarifies the language by which we talk about urban planning and design. Everyday words such as "avenue," "boulevard," "park," and "district," as well as less commonly used words and terms such as "sustainability," "carbon-neutral," or "Bilbao Effect" are used with a great variety of meanings, causing confusion among citizens, city officials, and other decision-makers when trying to design viable neighborhoods, towns, and cities. This magnificent volume is the fruit of more than a decade of research and writing in an effort to ameliorate this situation. Abundantly illustrated with over 2,500 photographs, drawings, and charts, The Language of Towns and Cities is both a richly detailed glossary of more than seven hundred words and terms commonly used in architecture and urban planning, and a compendium of great visual interest. From "A" and "B" streets to Zero Lot and Zeitgeist, the book is at once comprehensive and accessible. An essential work for architects, urban planners, students of design, and all those interested in the future of towns and cities, this is destined to become a classic in its field.

Children, Language, and Literacy: Diverse Learners in Diverse Times (Language & Literacy Series)
Celia Genishi and Anne Haas Dyson''Contemporary early childhood educators find themselves in contexts that are fundamentally inimical to the time-honored wisdom in our field. Children, Language, and Literacy speaks to all of us with a commitment to the very young and strengthens our collective resolve to work in increasingly more effective ways with children, families, and the next generation of teachers.'' -- Mary Renck Jalongo, Editor, Early Childhood Education Journal ''Genishi and Dyson animate sociocultural theories of language learning by inviting us into the intimacy of children's worlds. This book will become a treasure on the required reading lists for early childhood, ESOL, and language arts courses.'' -- JoBeth Allen, University of Georgia, Athens''If our standards-based economy requires us to make all children the same, to drain the joy out of learning, and to move lockstep through a set curriculum, we have forgotten what early childhood classrooms are all about. Genishi and Dyson remind us.'' -- Beth Graue, Interim Director, Wisconsin Center for Education Research''Celia Genishi and Anne Haas Dyson call on us to rethink children's language and literacy instruction in the changing and diverse landscape of U.S. education. That call must be answered, and they help us immensely understand how to do so.'' -- Eugene Garcia, Vice President, Education Partnerships, Arizona State UniversityIn their new collaboration, Celia Genishi and Anne Haas Dyson celebrate the genius of young children who are learning language and literacy in our diverse times. Despite burgeoning sociocultural diversity, many early childhood classrooms (pre-K to grade 2) offer a one-size-fits-all curriculum in which learning is too often assessed by standardized tests. In contrast, Genishi and Dyson proclaim diversity as the new norm. They feature stories of children whose language learning is impossible to standardize and teachers who do not follow scripts. These master teachers observe, informally assess, respond to, and grow with their students -- some of whom are rapid language learners and some of whom become speakers, readers, and writers at ''child speed.'' Much of this learning, regardless of tempo, is found within the language-rich contexts of play. Chapters focus on children's ways of communicating through varied modes, including the use of nonverbal expression; languages such as Spanish, English, and the variant of English known as African American Language; and multiple media. Throughout the text there is a resistance to labels such as ''at risk'' and a much-needed advocacy for child-sensible practices in a world where diversity is indeed the ''new norm.''
