Teaching Multicultured Students Culturalism and Anti-culturalism in the School Classroom

By Alex Moore Copyright 1999

    Offers suggestions for making classroom and teaching practice more effective for bilingual and bidialectical pupils. Case studies are used, which give voice to student and practising teacher perspectives which are often unheard.
