The fourth edition of this best-selling handbook brings together theories, ideas, and resources for promoting cross-cultural awareness, language development, and academic progress for English learners. It ties together culture and language in a comprehensive format, providing teachers with a wealth of specific strategies and classroom examples to apply to educational practice.

New to this edition:

-New Individualizing Instruction boxes throughout the text profile English learners with specific instructional needs, learning styles, or cultural requirements, and offer suggestions to meet those needs.

-Each chapter ends with opportunities for student reflection and a classroom activity to be performed with an English learner.

-New expanded content on assessment (Chapter 7) and content-based instruction (Chapter 5) has been added.

-Chapter 4 now includes more specific glimpses of classroom methods in use and more examples of how literacy instruction can be differentiated.

-Chapter 8 features a deeper discussion of culture, race, and ethnicity within the classroom.

-Chapter 9 expands upon the definition of culture and the concept that the individual is proactive during the process of accommodation.

-A MyEducationLab interactive website (www.myeducationlab.com) includes videos, simulations, case studies, activities, and more to help prepare students for teaching careers.
