The growing number of bilingual students in public schools coupled with a critical shortage of teachers specially prepared to serve this population calls for an explicit examination of the impact of bilingual education teacher preparation program types on teacher quality and effectiveness. Developed in response to this need, this comprehensive volume takes a close look at specific bilingual teacher preparation models and related cultural and linguistic issues to provide research-based information on best practices in bilingual education teacher preparation. Reflecting the editors' and contributors' shared vision and commitment, and designed to promote dialogic conversations and applications of praxis in the preparation of bilingual education teacher candidates, it emphasizes that exemplary preparation of teachers for economically and culturally diverse bilingual student populations requires transformative teacher educators and bilingual education programs. This must-have resource for teacher educators and graduate students in bilingual education programs simultaneously organizes the scholarship in the field and advances new understandings.
