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 Second Edition is essential reading for all teachers of language-minority students, as well as principals, superintendents, and policymakers.

Book Features:

  • Uses the most up-to-date research findings to demonstrate how ignoring children’s bilingualism perpetuates inequities in their schooling.
  • Points out the problems with current policies and practices and proposes more effective alternative methods.
  • Contrasts the common view of bilingualism as either subtractive or additive with more current understandings of individual bilingualism in translanguaging theories.
  • Highlights how multimodalities form part of students’ communicative repertoire and shows teachers how they can leverage this to engage students.

Book Description:


"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. García and Kleifgen explain in highly accessible prose both the why and how of instruction for emergent bilinguals (ELs) and why it matters so much that we get this right."

Patricia Gándara
, co-director, The Civil Rights Project at UCLA




“In the second edition of this important book, García and Kleifgen show the continued disconnect between research that points to the rich cultural and linguistic resources of minoritized emergent bilinguals and policies and practices that at best ignore these resources and at worst treats these resources as deficits in need of remediation. The authors further develop their blueprint for developing educational policies and practices that insists on the naming of the bilingualism of these students and treating this bilingualism as a resource for teaching and learning. This 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
