 As college classrooms have become more linguistically diverse, the work of
 ESOL professionals has expanded to include research on the experiences of
 multilingual learners not only in ESOL courses but also in courses across the
 curriculum. At the same time that ESOL professionals are trying to understand
 the academic challenges that learners face beyond ESOL courses, faculty
 across the disciplines are trying to meet the challenge of teaching
 students of differing linguistic backgrounds. Crossing the Curriculum:
 Multilingual Learners in College Classrooms responds to these issues and
 concerns by capturing the complex and content-specific nature of students' and
 teachers' experiences and providing a nuanced understanding of how multilingual
 students' learning can be fostered and sustained.
