Denham and Lobeck (both linguistics, Western Washington U.) present a textbook designed for students in teacher education programs who have a basic knowledge of linguistics. Twenty chapters written by 23 international academics explore ways in which basic linguistic knowledge can inform teachers' approaches to language issues in the multicultural, linguistically diverse classroom, and offer strategies and suggestions for integrating linguistics into the K-12 classroom in various ways.
