Professor García was first introduced to me in a letter from the publishers

Indeed, the lenses through which bilingualism and bilingual education are examined in this book extend and, at the same time, deepen our definitions and knowledge. Baker provides us not simply with binoculars, but with powerful lenses through which the multiple visions of bilingualism and bilingual education are reflected. Professor García was first introduced to me in a letter from the publishers. The letter simply said: 'I have been in contact with one of the present top-rate people in the States'. So have I, and I totally agree.

This is the most comprehensive, up-to-date volume on the state of bilingual education in the United States and, in particular, on effective curriculum and instructional approaches. Eugene García, a renowned authority on bilingual education, depicts the vast scope and complexity of the problem of educating English language learners. He sets forth a conceptual framework to guide educational policy and practice that reflects democratic ideals and values.

This authoritative reference:

Provides a comprehensive review of theory, research, practice, and policy that accurately characterizes the education of bilingual students in U.S. schools. Presents an analysis of teachers, classrooms, schools, and communities that have successfully educated bilingual children by employing diverse instructional strategies. Addresses language, social, and cognitive issues as they intersect with various instructional practices. Identifies the characteristics of effective bilingual education programs, presenting examples of school programs that exemplify these characteristics.
Comments to eBook Teaching and Learning in Two Languages: Bilingualism and Schooling in the United States (Multicultural Education Series)
Gavigamand
This is an important book for all teachers who are educating increasing numbers of bilingual students in their classrooms. Eugene Garcia writes about a subject he knows well, clearly and in a way that honors diversity. The text covers current demographics, school reform, and policy and offers a picture of how language, culture, and social class are interrelating aspects that effect who students are. He speaks about instructional practice grounded in what the research shows about what we know about bilingual students. I would highly recommend this book as an informative and well-written contribution to the discussion about how we prepare to teach diverse learners today.

This is a challenging book to read as it covers so much research that it is hard to process without taking forever to read.
