Bilingual and ESL Classrooms: Teaching in Multicultural Contexts
Focusing on the instructional process rather than policy issues, this is the first authored rather than edited teacher training text book on bilingual education and ESL. Written in a clear, readable style, it emphasizes the integration of the two fields, carefully explaining and clarifying contradictions between them. Completely up-to-date on proven methods of teaching a second language, it includes recent research on second language acquisition. Particularly valuable to teachers is the information on teaching methods for students with a limited command of English.
