How can educators implement an inclusive and effective curriculum for ESL students?
Sandra Schecter and Jim Cummins provide some answers from school-based practitioners and university-based researchers who worked on a collaborative project exploring strategies and structures that promote academic success for ESL students. This book documents the initiatives this group generated and carried out at two public schools. It also includes specific suggestions for developing school-based language policies and for preparing teachers to work effectively in linguistically and culturally diverse contexts.
