Language, Culture, and Teaching Series


About the Series

Founded by Sonia Nieto, this series of texts for undergraduate- and graduate-level teacher education courses focuses on the intersections of language, culture, and teaching – specifically on how language and culture inform classroom practice. Books in the series are intended as primary or supplementary texts in the growing range of courses that address issues such as, but not limited to, foundations of multicultural education; multicultural children’s literature; teaching diverse populations; foundations of bilingual education; teaching English as a second language; and sociocultural issues in teaching.

The primary objectives of the series are to challenge traditional biases about diversity and about students of diverse languages and cultures, and to reframe the conventional idea of the textbook by envisioning classroom practice as critical, creative, and liberatory. The current series editors are Laura Valdiviezo and Sonia Nieto. Please submit new proposals to Laura Valdiviezo and Routledge Editor Karen Adler at [email protected].
