Ties together culture and language for English learners!

The fourth edition of this best-selling handbook brings together theories, ideas, and resources for promoting crosscultural awareness, language development, and academic progress for English language learners (ELLs).It links culture and language in a comprehensive format, providing teachers with a wealth of specific strategies and classroom examples to apply to educational practice.

Designed specifically for the mainstream classroom teacher, this guide clearly shows the effects of second-language acquisition on learning and presents an excellent treatment of cultural diversity and learning styles. Given that more than two million students nationwide have limited English proficiency, there is more of a need than ever for an effective resource to help these students succeed in today’s standards-based environment.

New to this edition:

  • New Individualizing Instruction boxes throughout the text profile English learners with specific instructional needs, learning styles, or cultural requirements, and offer suggestions to meet those needs.
  • Each chapter ends with opportunities for student reflection and a classroom activity to be performed with an English learner.
  • New expanded content on assessment (Chapter 7) and content-based instruction (Chapter 5) has been added.
  • Chapter 4 now includes more specific glimpses of classroom methods in use and more examples of how literacy instruction can be differentiated.
  • Chapter 8 features a deeper discussion of culture, race, and ethnicity within the classroom.
  • Chapter 9 expands upon the definition of culture and the concept that the individual is proactive during the process of accommodation.
  • A MyEducationLab interactive website ( includes videos, simulations, case studies, activities, and more, to help prepare students for teaching careers.

What reviewers are saying about this new edition:

“There is a wide variety of topics addressed in this textbook, thus providing a bounty of information of teachers of ELLs. The information provided about content area instruction for ELLs and about culturally and linguistically diverse learners and special education is strong, thorough, and timely!” —Sam Perkins, Barry University

“[T]he authors need to be commended for such a fine job that they have done on the book. They have researched and written in an area that is not easy to teach but is a must for all teachers to understand in our public schools. The end result is what . . . an educator need[s] to know and understand to be an ‘intercultural educator’ for all students.” —Emilio Garza, California State University, Bakersfield
