What are the educational needs of bilingual children? What methods can be deployed to develop their education? And - most important of all - how can their bilinguality be an asset in the classroom? Applying theory and research findings to classroom practice, Bilinguality and Literacy demonstrates how bilingual children can benefit from a sensitive, informed and challenging education. With plentiful case studies and examples of children's work, this rich and optimistic text shows how children's bilinguality provides opportunities for the development of literacy throughout the curriculum. The book includes contributions by Maggie Ross, Li Wei, Peter Cunningham, Ian Menter, and Azar Sheibani, together with a foreword by Colin Baker.

The new edition of Bilinguality and Literacy argues that bilingual children's literacy learning in English is necessarily an intercultural process. Children's voices are strong in this revised, updated and expanded edition and looks closely at bilingual children's writing development in view of the Ofsted statement that 'fluent bilingual pupils struggle with writing (2003).' Bilinguality and Literacy will be of interest to undergraduate students of applied linguistics, teacher training courses, and academics researching multilingualism and literacy.

Multilingual classrooms where two or three - or over ten - languages are spoken are now common throughout the English-speaking world, and most teachers will at some time find themselves working with learners of English as an additional language. Traditionally, the emphasis in schools has been exclusively on English but recently teachers have begun to understand the importance of a solid foundation in the first language for development in a second. They are also recognising that all members of the class - including monolingual English speakers - can benefit from the expertise of bilingual children as part of the language study requirements of the National Curriculum. "The power of Babel" describes initiatives for promoting linguistic and cultural diversity in the classroom. It brings together practical teaching suggestions, case studies of good practice and information resources, which have all been tried and tested by primary teachers attending in service courses on 'meeting the needs of bilingual learners' at the University of Reading. All the ideas developed here have proved effective in enhancing children's learning.

The last two decades have witnessed a considerable reaction to the progressive utopianism of the 1960s. In education debates all over the English-speaking world, the talk is now of competition, back to basics, league tables, the demands of the market. This reaction has gone too far. Children need to be helped not only to achieve basic literacy but to read "critically," to discriminate, to evaluate, to enjoy great literature. It is not enough to help children to achieve literacy if this simply means they read only sufficiently well to be seduced by advertisers and tabloid newspapers. The essays in this book are by people engaged in the "promotion" of English, be they primary teachers or university lecturers, novelists or poets, publishers or social commentators, politicians or professors.
