Counter Educating Second Language Children is a collection of articles from fourteen elementary education experts who espouse an integrative approach to second language education, one that goes beyond language teaching methodology to cover a wide range of issues affecting the academic and social success of language minority children. The volume deals not only with second language development but with the development of the whole child; rather than focusing on language instruction, it addresses the entire curriculum; and instead of restricting itself to classroom learning, it examines the role of the school, family and community.
