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.
