Sonia Nieto, Series Editor

This series of texts for undergraduate and graduate-level teacher education courses focuses on the intersections of language, culture, and teaching — specifically, on how language and culture inform classroom practice. The books will range from 160 to 300 pages, and will be used as primary or supplementary texts in the growing number of courses that address issues such as, but not limited to:

  • Foundations of Multicultural Education
  • Multicultural Children’s Literature
  • Teaching Diverse Populations
  • Foundations of Bilingual Education
  • Teaching English as a Second Language
  • Sociocultural Issues in Teaching

The series will reframe the conventional idea of the textbook by envisioning classroom practice as critical, creative, and liberatory. Challenging traditional biases about diversity and about students of diverse languages and cultures are primary objectives of these books.
