Title: The Work of Language in Multicultural Classrooms
Subtitle: Talking Science, Writing Science
Edited By: Katherine Richardson Bruna

Series Title: Language, Culture, and Teaching Series
Description:

How does language comprise the implicit or explicit curriculum of teaching
and learning in multicultural science settings? Building on a growing
interest in the ways in which language and literacy practices interact with
science teaching and learning to facilitate or obstruct successful student
outcomes, this book contributes to scholarship on the role of language in
developing classroom scientific communities of practice, expands that work
by highlighting the challenges faced specifically by ethnic- and
linguistic-"minority" students and their teachers in joining those
communities, and showcases exemplary teaching and research initiatives for
helping to meet these challenges.

Offering teacher practitioners and researchers in the fields of science
education and multicultural education lenses through which they can
critically consider the myriad of classroom settings, instructional
approaches, curricular materials, and scientific topics involved in what it
means to teach science while pointedly addressing concerns about equity of
educational opportunity, this volume serves as a powerful resource for
linking theory and practice. End-of-chapter reflection questions and
engagement activities facilitate discussion round these issues and provide
rich opportunities for the reader to consider the implications of each
chapter for science instruction and research and to apply insights
developed in a real-world science teaching and learning contexts.
