Volume III of the Handbook of Research in Second Language Teaching and Learning, like Volumes I and II, is a comprehensive, state-of-the-art overview of current research into social contexts of second language (L2)/foreign language (FL) teaching and learning; language policy; curriculum; types of instruction; incremental language skills such as listening, speaking, reading, writing, vocabulary, and grammar; international communication; pragmatics; assessment and testing. It differs from earlier volumes in its main purpose—to provide a more in-depth discussion and detailed focus on the development of the essential language skills required for any type of communication: speaking, listening, reading, vocabulary, grammar, and writing. Volume III preserves continuity with previous volumes in its coverage of all the classical areas of research in L2/FL teaching and learning and applied linguistics, but rather than offering a historical review of disciplinary traditions, it explores innovations and new directions of research, acknowledges the enormous complexity of teaching and learning the essential language abilities, and offers a diversity of perspectives. Chapter authors are all leading authorities in their disciplinary areas. What’s new in Volume III? Updates the prominent areas of research, including the sub-disciplines addressed in Volumes I and II, and represents the disciplinary mainstays Considers and discusses perspectives held by different schools of thought on the what, the how, and the why of teaching foundational language skills, including theories, pedagogical principles, and their implementation in practice Captures new and ongoing developments and trends in the key areas of L2/FL teaching and learning, and innovative research topics that have gained substantial recognition in current publications, including the role of corpora, technology, and digital literacy in L2/FL teaching and learning Examines new trends in language pedagogy and research, such as an increased societal emphasis on teaching academic language for schooling, somewhat contradictory definitions of literacy, and the growing needs for instruction in intercultural communication.

It explores many aspects of inclusive practice relevant to those who work with children in schools and other educational settings, aiming to provide the most up-to-date theoretical knowledge and understanding in the field, and illustrating the theory with examples of good practice in the areas explored. Many of the topics that have appeared in the previous editions, including supporting children for whom English is a second language, children on the autistic spectrum and children with neurodiversity conditions, also appear in this edition. The revised content of this third edition also covers recent and relevant changes in national policy and legislation, particularly, for example, around changes in equality and disability, same-sex parenting and transgender children and parenting policy and legislation. It explores the impact on aspects of inclusive practice legislation such as the Equality Act 2010, Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013 and the Children and Families Act 2014. It also explores in detail the revised 2014 SEN Code of Practice and the introduction of the pupil premium in 2011, which provides support for the education of children from low income families or who may be children who are fostered or in care. Throughout, the book is informed by the solution-focused social model of special educational needs and disability, and reflects current national policy that sees inclusive practice as fundamental to ensure equality of educational opportunity is achieved for all children.

Responding to the need to prepare elementary teachers for the increasing linguistic diversity in schools, this book presents key foundational principles in language and literacy development for linguistically diverse students. Readers see these ideas enacted through the journeys of real students as they progress from 1st through 6th grade. What emerges is both a “big picture” and an “up close and personal” look at the successes, obstacles, and developmental nuances for students learning to read and write in a new language in inclusive classrooms. Throughout, the authors provide crucial guidance to educators that will support them in taking conscious steps toward creating educational equity for linguistically diverse students. “Resources such as Inclusive Literacy Teaching support the professional learning of emergent bilingual teachers in a respectful and practical manner.” —From the Foreword by Robert T. Jiménez, Vanderbilt University “If you are going to read just one book about working with multilingual children, this should be the book!” —Cynthia Brock, University of Wyoming “Illustrations of promising instructional strategies are shared to support teachers in making essential changes in their classroom literacy programs.” —Catherine Compton-Lilly, University of Wisconsin–Madison “This book beautifully illustrates the challenges, tensions, and opportunities faced by linguistically diverse students and their teachers and families.” —Claude Goldenberg, Stanford Graduate School of Education

The Casebook consists of "An Introduction to Cases" and 14 teaching cases based on actual events as experienced by the case authors that describe in rich detail the experiences of parents, students, and teachers related to inclusive education. Most of the cases pose problems or dilemmas to be resolved--including the struggles of parents seeking inclusive education for their children; students' attempts to succeed in general education classrooms; special educators', principals' and teachers' experiences as they collaborate in moving toward inclusive programs; and teachers' concerns for the future success of their students.

The authors of this book join a growing number of voices calling for teachers in diverse, inclusive schools to move beyond facilitating social participation in classroom activities and consider ways to intellectually engage ALL learners. They draw on emerging work linking critical theory with disability issues; work being done in curriculum studies around issues of social justice teaching, authentic instruction, service learning, and critical pedagogy; and the movement in the field of special education away from a deficit-driven model of education to an orientation that values students' strengths and gifts. Access to Academics for ALL Students: Critical Approaches to Inclusive Curriculum, Instruction, and Policy: *examines the perceptions teachers hold about students with disabilities, students who are racially and ethnically diverse, students using English as a second language, students labeled "at risk," students placed in both "high" and "low" academic tracks, and students in urban schools; *highlights how students who traditionally have been denied access to challenging work and educational opportunities can be supported to participate in academic instruction; and *provides ideas for recognizing and challenging inequities, offers a framework for fostering access to academics for students with a range of strengths and needs, and explores pragmatic ways of increasing academic success for all learners. This volume is appropriate for both undergraduate and master's level courses in curriculum and instruction, methods of teaching (special and general education), inclusive education, multicultural education, and cultural foundations of education. It will serve as a resource for elementary and secondary teachers, for school administrators, and for parents.
