Teaching Immigrant and Second-Language Students draws on the work of teachers, administrators, and researchers to identify the practices that reach diverse students most effectively.

Praise

The abbreviations and designations may change--LEPs, ELLs, bilingual, language minority, immigrant, or refugee students--but no matter what they are called, these are among the students most in danger of being lost in our elementary and secondary schools today. Educating them is not only an imperative; it is also a moral challenge and an awesome opportunity. A rare bridging of theoretical perspectives and practical strategies, Teaching Immigrant and Second Language Students is a refreshing answer to this challenge. It provides a wealth of information and is certain to be an invaluable resource for teachers, principals, policymakers, and other educational leaders. — Sonia Nieto, University of Massachusetts Amherst, and author of Affirming Diversity
