"Joinfostering: Adapting Teaching for the Multilingual Classroom" by Christian J. Faltis. [Book Review].
Cleghorn, Ailie
Canadian Journal of Research in Early Childhood Education, v6 n2 p189-91 May 1997
Faltis's book succeeds in teaching the real meaning of equality of educational opportunity, as this concept relates to language differences in American classrooms. Content of instruction is hindered when students are taught through a language that differs from the language used at home, because limited-English-proficient students are treated in ways not conducive to learning.
