This book joins experts in the field in a conversation focused on raising the level of instruction in schools in ways that validate all learners' realities. This book is for educators who wish to advocate for students' right to literacy. Chapter authors believe that educators must honor all learners' languages, seek to understand every student's funds of knowledge, and acknowledge English learners' cultural capital. They examine literacy as cultural and social phenomena. They link theory to teachers' practice in an easy to understand tone. This book is written for teachers and school administrators who know that the schoolhouse must attend to the educational needs of a student demographic that is plurilingual and pluricultural. It is for educational leaders who want to encourage EL expertise and leadership at all levels.
