Contemporary, comprehensive, theory and research based, and aligned with TESOL, 2003 standards, Mastering ESL and Bilingual Methods: Differentiated Instruction for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CLD) Students presents a giant step forward in enhancing the professional development and preparation that educators need for today’s diverse and changing classrooms.
