In this volume, scholars, researchers, and teacher educators from across the United States present their latest findings regarding teacher education to develop meaningful learning experiences and meet the sociocultural, linguistic, and academic needs of Latino ELLs. The book documents how teacher education programs guide teachers to engage in culturally and linguistically diverse academic contexts and sheds light on the variety of research-based theoretical frameworks that inform teaching practices. A unique contribution to the field, Learning from Emergent Bilingual Latinx Learners in K-12 provides innovative approaches for linking Latino school communities with teachers at a time when demographic shifts are considerably altering population trends in the K-12 educational system.

This book explores the lives of five Mexican immigrant-origin youths in the United States, documenting their language and literacy journeys over an eight-year period from adolescence to young adulthood. In these qualitative case studies, the author uses a “longitudinal interactional histories approach” (LIHA) to explore literacy events in which the young people participated over time, telling the stories behind texts they created in order to better understand opportunities for bilingual and biliterate development available inside and outside of formal schooling. The book begins with an overview and exploration of theories and research underpinning the project, with a focus on countering minoritizing discourses faced by many multilingual immigrant youth and prioritizing the “goodness” of their experiences. The study’s methodology, including LIHA, is presented, before individual case studies of all five youth are explored. The book closes with a synthesis of these cases and exploration of pedagogical, policy, and research implications. It will be of particular interest to students and scholars of education, applied linguistics and sociolinguistics, as well as teachers and policy-makers working with bilingual and biliterate immigrant youth. Amanda Kibler is an Associate Professor in the College of Education at Oregon State University, USA. Her work focuses on better understanding the language and literacy development of multilingual children and adolescents from immigrant backgrounds and using these insights to support educators in providing more equitable learning opportunities for all students.

As has been abundantly documented in the popular and academic press, the humanities are facing challenging times marked by national debate regarding the importance of the humanities in higher education, program and budget cuts, and an ever-decreasing number of tenure-track jobs. In addition, the humanities face quite literally a quantification of their value as the Academy adopts a more corporate mindset. This volume provides advice to professionals in the humanities on how to forge a useful, compelling, and productive career. The book’s 13 chapters address professional approaches to developing and maintaining an active research agenda, fomenting the ideals of the teacher-scholar model, managing the service demands within and outside the college or university, and navigating institutional politics. The collection offers practical and theoretical approaches to higher education, personal anecdotes, intelligent advice, and interviews with colleagues in the humanities. Specific themes addressed include the transition from graduate student to humanities professional, diverging from prescribed paths, the humanities professor as creative writer, moving from secondary to post-secondary education, humanities in an international, market-based context, and participation in governance structures.

This volume seeks to answer the question "What history should schools teach?" It makes a case for why the teaching of history is vital, and features an interpretation of both U.S. and world history. The chapter on U.S. history is organized into 14 units that correspond to major historical eras: (1) Three Worlds Meet (1450-1600); (2) The Colonial Era (1600-1754); (3) The Revolutionary Era (1754-1783); (4) Nation Building (1783-1815); (5) The Expanding Nation: The North (1815-1850); (6) The Expanding Nation: The Westward Movement (1815-1850); (7) The Civil War and Reconstruction (1850-1877); (8) The Second Industrial Revolution (1865-1900); (9) The Progressive Era (1900-1914); (10) The Emergence of the United States as a World Power and World War I (1890-1920); (11) The 1920s: A Decade of Prosperity and Problems; (12) The Depression and the New Deal (1929-1941); (13) World War II and the Cold War (1939-1961); and (14) The Recent United States (1961-Present). The materials in each unit are presented under three major topic headings. The first, Significance and Teaching Goals, argues the importance of the subject at hand and some of the most worthwhile goals to be sought in teaching it. The second heading, Major Topics, briefly outlines those topics and sub-topics around which the larger subject may be effectively organized. Finally, under the third heading, Major Topics and Their Development: Essential Understandings and Related Teacher Background, there appears a detailed and interpretive narrative, which is meant to serve as background to help teachers in framing their own interpretation and presentation. The units on world history are organized into the same format. They are: (1) The Beginnings of Civilization; (2) The Classical Civilizations of the Mediterranean World, India, and China (ca. 1000 B.C.-600 A.D.); (3) The Expansion of Agrarian Civilizations (ca. 600-1450 A.D.); (4) The Early Modern World (1450-1800 A.D.); (5) The World in the 19th Century; and (6) The World in the Contemporary Era.

From the founding of the first colonies until the present, the influence of Christianity, as the dominant faith in American society, has extended far beyond church pews into the wider culture. Yet, at the same time, Christians in the United States have disagreed sharply about the meaning of their shared tradition, and, divided by denominational affiliation, race, and ethnicity, they have taken stances on every side of contested public issues from slavery to women's rights. This volume of twenty-two original essays, contributed by a group of prominent thinkers in American religious studies, provides a sophisticated understanding of both the diversity and the alliances among Christianities in the United States and the influences that have shaped churches and the nation in reciprocal ways. American Christianities explores this paradoxical dynamic of dominance and diversity that are the true marks of a faith too often perceived as homogeneous and monolithic. Contributors: Catherine L.
