224 Chapter 9 We encourage researchers to develop teaching materials and observational instruments in cooperation with the educational field. These materials and instruments should include good practices that answer to the specific needs of (young) newly arrived migrant pupils. Furthermore, such instruments should be used by teacher educators in their training for (prospective) teachers. In the next decade more and more classes will include second language learners and thus every teacher should know how to create the best learning environment for these children, how to measure language development appropriately, and how to take into account the language background of the child and other child characteristics that influence second language development.
