Summary

The first edition of Between Worlds provided such an excellent grounding in the theories and practices of second language acquisition that when it won MLA's Mildenberger Award it was cited for its treatment of the ''issues that concern teachers of languages at all levels and in all contexts.'' Tens of thousands of educators discovered how to expand the learning potential of their students by considering how the world inside the school interacts with outside social contexts.

Now, seven years later, the schooling of English language learners has become far more complex and political. So the Freemans have updated their classic text to address new trends and issues related to the teaching of multilingual students. The second edition features:

  • clear, accessible review of second language acquisition theories and research in the fields of second language acquisition, bilingual education, and second language teaching methodology--now completely updated
  • new insight into the social and cultural factors that affect second language acquisition and related current research and theory
  • discussion of the role of grammar in second language acquisition
  • the content teachers need for certification to teach second language learners--such as CLAD/BCLAD
  • unparalleled practicality, with lots of new classroom examples, strategies, thematic units, student work, and language stories
  • ideas for promoting cultural sensitivity
  • logical organization that could easily serve as a basis for a course syllabus
  • practical suggestions and useful resources for working with parents of language minority students.
