The power of reading : insights from the research by Stephen D Krashen( Book )

31 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and Chinese and held by 1,706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Continuing the case for free voluntary reading set out in the book's 1993 first edition, this new, updated, and much-looked-for second edition explores new research done on the topic in the last 10 years as well as looking anew at some of the original research reviewed. Krashen also explores research surrounding the role of school and public libraries and the research indicating the necessity of a print-rich environment that provides light reading (comics, teen romances, magazines) as well as the best in literature to assist in educating children to read with understanding and in second language acquisition. He looks at the research surrounding reading incentive/rewards programs and specifically at the research on AR (Accelerated Reader) and other electronic reading products
The natural approach : language acquisition in the classroom by Stephen D Krashen( Book )

69 editions published between 1982 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,099 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theory and methods of the natural approach to language acquisition in the classroom are described. The natural approach is based on the theory that language acquisition occurs only when students receive comprehensible input. The emphasis is on reading and listening comprehension for beginning students. The seven chapters cover (1) language teaching approaches, (2) second language acquisition theory, (3) classroom implications of the theory, (4) how to begin using the natural approach, (5) oral communication development through acquisition activities, (6) additional sources of input for acquisition, and (7) testing and classroom management. Curriculum organization, classroom activities, management of classroom activities, the role of reading in the natural approach, homework, vocabulary, and error correction are also discussed. (Rw)

On the Monitor Theory of adult second language acquisition
Language two by Heidi Dulay( Book )

33 editions published between 1982 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this course text on second language acquisition, the latest research of Halle and Chomsky, Lenneberg, Hatch, Larsen-Freeman, Dulay and Burt, and Krashen is presented. The text covers such topics as the effects of environment, age, and personality on second language acquisition; the role of the first language; and error analysis. Enough has been learned from the research to suggest that the learner's contribution to the whole learning process has been highly underestimated, and that a knowledge of these contributions can help improve current teaching practices. Theory is related to practice by the presentation of information on curriculum planning and classroom procedures. The chapters include: The Language Environment, Internal Processing, Effects of Personality and Age on Second Language Acquisition, The Role of the First Language, Transitional Constructions, Errors, Acquisition Order, Special Constructions, Aspects of Second Language Research Methodology, and From Research to Reality: Implications for the Teacher. Study questions and suggestions for further research follow each chapter. It is intended that the information about natural learning processes will help teachers devise effective lessons and develop materials that enhance natural development tendencies. (Ncr)

Under attack : the case against bilingual education by Stephen D Krashen( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bilingual education is under attack. Letters to the editor, editorials, and talk show hosts repeat the same arguments nearly daily. Bilingual education, they say, doesn't work. In this empirically grounded monography, Krashen answers the critics. His book examines the following issues: Does the research show that bilingual education doesn't work? (No); Is English in trouble? (No); Are most parents and teachers against bilingual education? (No); Will bilingual education work for languages other than Spanish? (Yes); What about those who succeed without bilingual education?

Condemned without a trial : bogus arguments against bilingual education by Stephen D Krashen( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An expert on second language acquisition examines and refutes five commonly offered arguments against bilingual education: (1) it is responsible for the high Hispanic dropout rate; (2) most immigrants succeed without bilingual education; (3) the United States is the only nation that has bilingual education; (4) bilingual education failed in California; and (5) public opinion is against bilingual education. A final chapter comments on J. Greene's "a Meta-Analysis of the Effectiveness of Bilingual Education," a study that re-analyzed existing data on bilingual education. Contents are indexed. Contains 13 references. (Mse)
Three arguments against whole language & why they are wrong by Stephen D Krashen( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book seeks to set the record straight about today's "reading wars," and analyzes the three major "battle cries" of whole language critics. In a step-by-step dissection, the book reiterates the three arguments, then explores the most salient studies that support or refute them. According to the book, the three claims are: eye movement studies prove that readers assay text "completely," and therefore do not sample text to confirm predictions, as maintained by whole language advocates; context interferes with reading; and skill-building approaches to reading have been shown to produce better results than whole language. In general, the book finds that the studies underpinning these claims were biased by the methodology used. The book aims to offer some real solutions, chief of which is making sure that all children have access to interesting reading material so they can achieve the standards of literacy they deserve. Chapters in the book are: (1) "Eye Fixation Studies Do Not Disprove the Goodman-Smith Hypothesis"; (2) "Does Context Interfere with Learning To Read?"; (3) "When Whole Language Means Real Reading, It Is a Consistent Winner over Skills in Method Comparison Studies"; (4) "Eliminating Print Deprivation"; and (5) "Phonemic Awareness (pa) Training for Prelinguistic Children: Do We Need Prenatal pa?"

This book covers a wide range of topics: from the role of the input/comprehension hypothesis (and its current rival-the comprehensible output hypothesis), the still-very-good idea of free voluntary reading, and current issues and controversies about teaching grammar, to considerations of how it is we grow intellectually, or how we "get smart."
