Hilda Hernandez; Paperback;
Comprehensive -- yet not overwhelming -- this text provides a basic framework for teaching in classroom settings that are multilingual
and multicultural. Written specifically from an educational perspective and using a balance of contemporary theory, research, and
practice, it explores different dimensions of context, process, and content -- as well as assessment and evaluation -- related to pedagogy
that empowers language minority students. It is accessible and appropriate for teachers with little or no background in ESL or bilingual
education as well as for specialists.
