Encyclopedia of bilingualism and bilingual education
The encyclopedia is broken into four sections discussing individual bilingualism, languages in society, languages in contact in the world, and bilingual education. Each section offers numerous textboxes, photographs, and graphics. Cross-referencing allows the reader to access other information in the encyclopedia, while "Further Reading" sections at the end of each topic and a bibliography at the end of the encyclopedia lead the reader to information elsewhere.

International handbook of bilingualism and bilingual education
Second language students in mainstream classrooms [computer file] : a handbook for teachers in international schools
This handbook is designed as an aid to teachers of mainstream classes in the elementary sections of English-medium international schools. Teachers of these classes are faced on a daily basis with managing the education of children from diverse language and cultural backgrounds. Most international schools contain a majority group of students from one of the English-speaking countries of the world; however, it is the presence of the second language children that gives such schools their unique flavour. It is also the presence of these students that offers a major challenge to classroom teachers.
