Title: Bilingual Education in the 21st Century
Subtitle: A Global Perspective
Written By: Ofelia Garcia
URL: http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-1405119942.html
Description:

Bilingual Education in the 21st Century examines languages and bilingualism
as individual and societal phenomena, presents program types, variables,
and policies in bilingual education, and concludes by looking at practices,
especially pedagogies and assessments. This thought-provoking work is an
ideal textbook for future teachers as well as providing a fresh view of the
subject for school administrators and policy makers.

-Provides an overview of bilingual education theories and practices
throughout the world

-Extends traditional conceptions of bilingualism and bilingual education to
include global and local concerns in the 21st century

-Questions assumptions regarding language, bilingualism and bilingual
education, and proposes a new theoretical framework and alternative views
of teaching and assessment practices

-Reviews international bilingual education policies, with separate chapters
dedicated to US and EU language policy in education

-Gives reasons why bilingual education is good for all children throughout
the world, and presents cases of how this is being carried out

"After this book, there is no need for another book on bi/multilingual
education for a decade. With its creativity, new conceptualizations,
enormous worldwide knowledge and unusual combination of path-breaking
theory and insider knowledge about schools, this is, The Book on bilingual
education."
-Tove Skutnabb-Kangas, University of Roskilde
