ABSTRACT
The article discusses how language teachers can blend higher-order thinking skills with the stages of language acquisition to improve classroom instruction for English-language learners. Teachers will be required to adopt different teaching strategies that encourage learning at higher levels and educational leaders will be required to address the change process to ensure that teaches have the support they need. The stages of second language acquisition including preproduction, early production, speech emergence, intermediate fluency, and advanced fluency are explored. The relationship of Bloom's taxonomy to the stages of language acquisition are discussed.
