Summary

This comprehensive handbook comes at a time when over two million students nationwide with limited English proficiency fill our classrooms--a time when today's teachers desperately need practical, effective resources to help these students succeed in school. It brings together theories, ideas, and resources for promoting cross-cultural awareness, language development, and academic progress; ties together culture and language in a comprehensive format; and delves deeply into the educational challenges faced by classroom teachers. Written specifically for the mainstream teacher, the guide shows clearly the effects of cultural differences on learning and presents an excellent treatment of cultural diversity and learning styles.
