Series Title: Bilingual Education and Bilingualism
Description:

This volume builds on Fortune and Tedick’s 2008 Pathways to Multilingualism:
Evolving Perspectives on Immersion Education and showcases the practice
and promise of immersion education through in-depth investigations of program
design, implementation practices, and policies in one-way, two-way and
indigenous programs. Contributors present new research and reflect on
possibilities for strengthening practices and policies in immersion education.
Questions explored include: What possibilities for program design exist in
charter programs for both two-way and indigenous models? How do studies on
learner outcomes lead to possibilities for improvements in program
implementation? How do existing policies and practices affect struggling
immersion learners and what possibilities can be imagined to better serve such
learners? In addressing such questions, the volume invites readers to consider
the possibilities of immersion education to enrich the language development and
educational achievement of future generations of learners.
