With contributions from leading scholars all around the world, this volume

teachers to develop responsive and transformative pedagogies. Using
testimonies, narratives and examples from different international contexts, this
book points clearly to what can be achieved practically in the multilingual
classroom so that multilingual learners’ voices are legitimated, while also
addressing the complex inter-relating sociolinguistic issues around the
promotion of bilingualism and multilingualism in education.
