Reviewers are raving about this book: ''The case studies and examples are accurate and good for all chapters. This is one of the strongest aspects of this text.''- Janet Medina, McDaniel College ''This book provides current, research-based, and high quality pedagogical and assessment approaches and strategies that respond to current federal policy and high-stakes national and professional standards. The book gets deeply into the immigration issues, assessment issues and alignment of assessment with standards. I really like the completeness of the text and the focus on creating informed teachers who are advocates for their ELLs.'' - Zohreh R. Eslami, Texas A&M University ''Of particular value is the statement of standards at the beginning of each chapter. The author is quite clear in defining key terms and concepts and presents wonderful, informative examples of key points. The explanations and connections are often lacking in most texts. In addition, this text provides valuable insight to the critical issues of cultural AND linguistic diversity where many texts focus solely on linguistic diversity.'' - Dr. Fay Roseman, Barry University School of Education Also by these authors: Mastering ESL and Bilingual Methods: Differentiated Instruction for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CLD) StudentsOacute;2005 ISBN 0-205-41060-X This book gives readers the indispensable tools they need to articulate and defend their fully adapted instructional practices for culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) students, as well as connect that instruction to national standards. ...show lessEdition/Copyright: 07
