Originally published in 1992. This book is designed to help the teacher facing the challenge posed by multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, multi-language classes. The contributions, from teachers and Higher Education tutors, are based on experience and research in this area and their emphasis is practical with theoretical support being provided where relevant. Part one considers issues of difference, including looking at oral language development, issues of assessment, and the particular needs of traveller children, among other topics. The second part looks at stories and books while the third looks at active language use in writing and drama. Part four suggests useful resources.
