Policy and Practice in the Education of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students.
Tucker, G. Richard, Ed.
The numbers of culturally and linguistically diverse students in classrooms at all levels of study are increasing dramatically. In addition, the available information indicates that in general they are not performing well scholastically. Five articles address this issue; they are remarks from a 1992 symposium of members from the Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages and from the American Educational Research Association. The article titles and authors follow: "Cognitive Academic Language Needs of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students" (Merrill Swain); "Assessing the Academic and Cognitive Growth of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students" (Else V. Hamayan); "Current Directions in Curriculum Development and Materials Preparation for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students" (JoAnn Crandall); "Shifting Conceptions of Pedagogical Equity: Preparing Teachers to Teach Linguistically and Culturally Diverse Students" (Donald Freeman); and "Information Dissemination and Collaboration with Diverse Constituencies" (Denise McKeon).
