Overview

Educating Second Language Children brings together the work of 15 elementary education experts who support an integrative approach to educating second language children, one that goes beyond language teaching methodology to cover a wide range of issues affecting the academic and social success of language minority children. The volume deals not only with language development, but with the development of the whole child; rather than focusing on language instruction, it addresses the entire curriculum; and instead of limiting itself to classroom learning, it examines the role of the school, family, and community. This new perspective is developed through authoritative, research-based articles, written in a style accessible to a wide audience a of teaching professionals.
