In today's linguistically diverse classrooms, it is essential for teachers to understand the needs of students who are acquiring English as an additional language.

A wide variety of linguistic backgrounds is represented in the collection, and the stories examine language learning issues over a broad range of time, highlighting cultural, political, and social realities that can shape the language learning experiences of children and adults. This volume can be used in a variety of education settings including undergraduate and graduate courses in TESOL, Literacy Studies, and Language Arts and faculty development workshops.
