What young children from diverse backgrounds and those faced with the challenges of poverty need to succeed in school today is the focus of this authoritative book. Grounded in research yet masterfully linked to practice, it gives early childhood practitioners the tools, resources, and guidance they need to ensure quality education for young children from all backgrounds and all walks of life.

 

Substantially reorganized and streamlined to focus on the most relevant issues, the new Second Edition of Linda Espinosa’s Getting It RIGHT for Young Children from Diverse Backgrounds looks at the advances in the scientific understanding of dual language development since the First Edition was published; presents the new research on program models and classroom practices that improve the educational outcomes for children from diverse backgrounds; includes a new chapter dedicated to instructional strategies and classroom practices with video links, illustrations, sample lessons, and practical examples; and adds clear learning objectives, summary paragraphs, reflection questions, and extensive activities to each chapter to help students internalize the content and apply it to their own work. The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded video and internet resources.
