In this volume, scholars, researchers, and teacher educators from across the United States present their latest findings regarding teacher education to develop meaningful learning experiences and meet the sociocultural, linguistic, and academic needs of Latino ELLs. The book documents how teacher education programs guide teachers to engage in culturally and linguistically diverse academic contexts and sheds light on the variety of research-based theoretical frameworks that inform teaching practices. A unique contribution to the field, Learning from Emergent Bilingual Latinx Learners in K-12 provides innovative approaches for linking Latino school communities with teachers at a time when demographic shifts are considerably altering population trends in the K-12 educational system.
