Abstract

Leadership for Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Schools explores how schools can cultivate students' linguistic and cultural proficiencies, provide students with a rich and challenging learning environment, and ensure that students are socioculturally integrated. Containing special features such as Storyboxes to detail specific cases of how school leaders put theory into practice, and integrated exercises to provide launching points for critical dialogue and help readers make connections to their own contexts, this book brings together research from the field of bilingual education and school improvement to provide a strong theoretical and research framework as well as best practices for supporting all students. Authors Scanlan and López provide aspiring and practicing leaders the guidance to lead, organize, and support their schools to effectively serve linguistically and culturally diverse students. A Companion Website includes exercises from the book available for download and modification and a blog focused on emerging research and effective practices.
