Language, Culture, and Teaching: Critical Perspectives - Language, Culture, and Teaching Series (Paperback)Sonia Nieto (author)
- Not available
Distinguished multiculturalist Sonia Nieto speaks directly to current and future teachers in this thoughtful integration of a selection of her key writings with creative pedagogical features. Offering information, insights, and motivation to teach students of diverse cultural, racial, and linguistic backgrounds, this text is intended for upper-undergraduate and graduate-level students and professional development courses.
Examples are included throughout to illustrate real-life dilemmas about diversity that teachers face in their own classrooms; ideas about how language, culture, and teaching are linked; and ways to engage with these ideas through reflection and collaborative inquiry. Each chapter includes critical questions; classroom activities; and community activities suggesting projects beyond the classroom context.
Over half of the chapters are new to this edition, bringing it up-to-date in terms of recent educational policy issues and demographic changes in our society.

"This book is noteworthy in that through theory-grounded discussions and a few evidential narratives, it consistently encourages the readers to imagine and create an equitable reality, taking a proactive approach in social betterment instead of letting status quo paralyze us."--Education Review
