Description - The Work of Language in Multicultural Classrooms by Katherine Richardson Bruna

This book assists science teachers and teacher educators in accommodating students' cultural and linguistic diversity in the classroom. It contributes to the growing body of work on the role of language in developing classroom scientific communities of practice, expands that work by highlighting the challenges faced specifically by diverse learners and their teachers in joining those communities, and showcases exemplary teaching and research initiatives for helping to meet these challenges. End-of-chapter reflection and extension sections offer rich opportunities for the reader to reflect on the implications of each chapter's findings for science instruction and research and to apply insights developed in real-world science teaching and learning contexts. Informative and engaging, "The Work of Language in Multicultural Classrooms" is intended for courses specifically related to science education, particularly those emphasizing academic literacy and/or educating linguistically and culturally diverse students.
