Title: Minority Populations in Canadian Second Language Education
Edited By: Katy Arnett
Callie Mady
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781783090297
Series Title: New Perspectives on Language and Education
Description:

Until now, the picture painted of French second language learning in Canada has tended to focus on successful French immersion. This volume offers a broader representation, in response to the demographic changes that have made the French language classroom a more complex place. Focusing on inclusion and language maintenance, the chapters discuss how a multilingual population can add the two official languages to their repertoire whilst maintaining their languages of origin/heritage; how the revitalization of Indigenous languages can best be supported in the language classroom, and how students with disabilities can be helped to successfully learn languages.
