English language -- Study and teaching (Preschool) -- Foreign speakers;
English-language learners are filling preschool classrooms across the country in classrooms where teachers are ill-prepared to teach them the English language. Teachers need support in knowing and understanding what current approaches are being used and what strategies are most effective to develop English vocabulary acquisition and help these learners succeed. Research articles are discussed and summarized, resulting in an analysis of how well preschool ELLs may or may not learn English vocabulary. A conclusion discusses the results and suggestions are given for classroom teachers.
