Finally a book where we are shown what good teaching - in a bilingual setting - looks like. Adelman Reyes and Crawford do an excellent job of taking us into the small moments of a classroom that are so powerful and connecting them to pedagogical and theoretical concepts. This book is a breath of fresh air in a "how to" climate of teaching recipes. This is real, entertaining and enlightening. And the look ahead to these students is a unique perspective...waiting to read more about them!

As someone who is potentially interested in teaching and someone who wishes bilingual classes had been a bit better when I was a student, I enjoyed reading this book. I remember starting out in a bilingual classroom in 1st grade, but it was more of an ESL classroom than a true bilingual classroom. I wish I had had a teacher like Ms Sontag! For the younger grades, such teaching methods really seemed to work well at this particular school. I'm not sure how this would transfer to older students, it would be interesting if there were a book about how their high school classes are run.

I just read this book for a class. It does have a lot of good information but is slightly outdated.

Although it's impossible for me to implement this kind of a system in my corner of the world, I found the book inspirational and provided ideas I can use. I can see at least a portion of the curriculum I have influence over moving in this general direction.

I purchased this book as part of my graduate research - but the school has now become wrapped up in my dream career - well written, informative. I bought it on Kindle, but now want a hard copy as well.
