Publisher Description

Now available in a revised and expanded edition, this accessible guide introduces readers to the issues and controversies surrounding the education of language minority students in the United States. What makes this book a perennial favorite are the succinct descriptions of alternative practices for transforming our schools and students’ futures, such as building on students’ home languages and literacy practices, incorporating curricular and pedagogical innovations, using proven-effective approaches to parent engagement, and employing alternative assessment tools.

The authors have updated their bestseller to reflect recent shifts in policies, programs, and practices due to globalization and the changing economy; demographic trends; and new research on EL pedagogy. A totally new chapter highlights multimedia and multimodal instructional possibilities for engaging EL students.

“This is the book that every educator in 21st-century USA should read. Few will not have students from other-than-English backgrounds at some point.”
—Patricia Gándara, co-director, The Civil Rights Project at UCLA

“The second edition of this important book is a must-read for researchers, policymakers, and practitioners interested in improving the education of minoritized emergent bilinguals.”
—Nelson L. Flores, University of Pennsylvania

“An excellent resource for policymakers, researchers, and educators who are interested in taking specific action to improve the education of English learners.”
—Linguistics and Education (of first edition)
