Bilingual Education in Elementary and Secondary School Communities: Toward Understanding and Caring / Edition 1

The number of immigrant and minority students who are entering school with a language other than English is growing and will continue to do so in substantial proportions well into the next millennium. To succeed in school, many of these students will require teachers who have the ability and desire to 1) teach literacy and content in the students' native language, 2) to integrate language and content, 3) make schooling culturally relevant, and 4) take a stance against anti-bilingual forces in society and education. Written by two leaders in the field of bilingual education, this book focuses teachers toward the goal of building school communities. the authors believe bilingual education should be an integral part of school communities that all personnel should be involved in and responsible for. Topics include: the why and what of bilingual education, bilingual educational settings, bilingual education in elementary and secondary school settings, and much more. This book belongs in the hands of every school administrator and teacher looking to incorporate bilingual education into their school.
