Description:

The Foundations of Dual Language Instructionis a practical book that examines the basic social, political, historical, and educational foundations of teaching second language learners. This outstanding book is simply written and accessible to beginners. The author takes an objective look at dual language instruction and examines its different parts in a scholarly fashion. She places this important topic in a social environment and develops an understanding of the politics of dual language instruction and the controversy it inspires. Providing basic definitions and theoretical frameworks for thinking about bilingual education, the Fifth Edition continues to explore the political dimensions of language and clearly demonstrates how language works in the classroom. nbsp;bilingual instruction
