Now nearly one out of five young people speaks a language other than English at home. As the demographics of American classrooms change, educators need a host of strategies to ensure that they meet the needs of all students who sit in todays classrooms.An underlying premise of the book is that, rather than viewing immigrant and second-language learners as problem students, educators can succeed by focusing on the many assets these young people bring to the classroom.Contributors address such topics as assessment, the benefits of strong parent-school partnerships, and successful professional development strategies for teachers and administrators who have immigrant and second-language students in their schools.Given our rapidly changing school population, this book is essential reading for every educator.
