Book Cover
The Handbook of Bilingual and Multilingual Education

The Handbook of Bilingual and Multilingual Education is the first comprehensive reference work to address the policies, pedagogical practices, and educational theories related to the dynamic interdisciplinary field of bilingual and multilingual education, in a truly international way. The editors have drawn together a stellar team of established and emerging scholars from across the globe to address the theoretical foundations of bilingual and multilingual education and explore issues of pedagogy (including language assessment and teacher support) and special populations (from early childhood to adulthood, including learners with specific language impairments, and language learning outside the classroom). The Handbook examines specific regions from around the world, exploring issues of policy and perception in contexts as diverse as Japan, South Africa, Mexico, and Cambodia. Sixteen robust case studies, paired with the theoretical and pedagogical foundations, combine to make this Handbook a vital resource for students and educators alike engaging in this critical and vibrant field.
