Text Overview


This book addresses issues that educators, policy makers and parents of linguistically diverse children must face when teaching in, administrating or choosing an International School. The author draws on teaching theory to propose guidelines, best practice and checklists for ensuring that all children in a school s multicultural society benefit from a truly inclusive curriculum, regardless of their linguistic and cultural origins.
