Crossing the Curriculum Multilingual Learners in College Classrooms Crossing
Author: Vivian Zamel
As college classrooms have become more linguistically diverse, the work of ESOL professionals has expanded to include research on the experiences of multilingual learners not only in ESOL courses but also in courses across the curriculum. At the same time that ESOL professionals are trying to understand the academic challenges that learners face beyond ESOL courses, faculty across the disciplines are trying to meet the challenge of teaching students of differing linguistic backgrounds. Crossing the Curriculum: Multilingual Learners in College Classrooms responds to these issues and concerns by capturing the complex and content-specific nature of students' and teachers' experiences and providing a nuanced understanding of how multilingual students' learning can be fostered and sustained. Crossing the Curriculum: Multilingual Learners in College Classrooms is unique in bringing together the perspectives of researchers, students, and teachers. These multiple lenses allow for a richly layered picture of how students and teachers actually experience college classrooms. Common themes and pedagogical principles resonate across the three distinct sections of the book: *Part One, "Investigating Students' Experiences Across the Curriculum: Through the Eyes of Classroom Researchers," consists of chapters written by ESOL and composition researchers who have investigated multilingual students' experiences in undergraduate courses across the curriculum. *Part Two, "Learning Across the Curriculum: Through Students' Eyes," consists of chapters written by two multilingual learners who chronicled their experiences as they crossed the curriculum over time. *Part Three, "Engaging Students in Learning: Through the Eyes of Faculty Across the Curriculum," consists of chapters written by faculty from several academic fields--Anthropology, Philosophy, Nursing, Literature, Sociology, and Asian American Studies--who discuss their own attempts to address the needs of multilingual learners in their classrooms.

Genre across the Curriculum will function as a "good" textbook, one not for the student, but for the teacher, and one with an eye on the context of writing. Here you will find models of practice, descriptions written by teachers who have integrated the teaching of genre into their pedagogy in ways that both support and empower the student writer. While authors here look at courses across disciplines and across a range of genres, they are similar in presenting genre as situated within specific classrooms, disciplines, and institutions. Their assignments embody the pedagogy of a particular teacher, and student responses here embody students' prior experiences with writing. In each chapter, the authors define a particular genre, define the learning goals implicit in assigning that genre, explain how they help their students work through the assignment, and, finally, discuss how they evaluate the writing their students do in response to their teaching.

Catherine M. O'Callaghan, Patricia A. Antonacci, Lucy P. Murphy, Florence D. Musiello, and Eugene Wolfson "Using Children's Literature Across the Curriculum: A Handbook of Instructional Strategies" This resource uniquely offers preservice and inservice teachers templates for using quality children's literature to implement six themes across grades K-8. The themes are based on national curriculum standards and text sets are carefully selected to facilitate discussion, analysis, and problem solving across the grades. "Using Children s Literature Across the Curriculum, "provides teachers with a guide to using multilayered texts to facilitate students attainment of critical literacy. It is designed to be a supplemental guide for teachers in designing literacy instruction. The instructional sequence includes collaborative inquiry activities across the curriculum to extend each theme to math, science, technology and social studies. Teachers are shown how to incorporate family literacy with a component entitled Home School Connections and to differentiate instruction for individual learners with a section entitled On Your Own Activities . The theme concludes with a critical literacy activity that applies the content knowledge of the theme with collaborative inquiry.

This book is based on the European Comenius project CROSSNET with eight case studies about innovation and science teacher education in six European countries. Guiding questions were how teachers, policy makers and teacher educators collaborate in the process of change and how local background projects respond to opportunities for the exchange of experiences and reflection in terms of a common theoretical framework of boundary crossing. The case studies were conducted by local coordinators and contracted teachers. They are supplemented by a cross-case analysis of common and distinct features in the projects and an essay about the relationship between boundary crossing, transformative learning and curriculum theory. Main outcomes are about school-based reform and collaboration for science education.

Discrete mathematics is the branch of mathematics that deals with arrangements of distinct objects. It includes a wide variety of topics and techniques that arise in everyday life, such as how to find the best route from one city to another, where the objects are cities arranged on a map. It also includes how to count the number of different combinations of toppings for pizzas, how best to schedule a list of tasks to be done, and how computers store and retrieve arrangements of information on a screen.

This practical guide will empower even the busiest faculty members to create culturally inclusive courses and learning environments. In a collection of more than 50 vignettes, exceptional teachers from a wide range of academic disciplines—health sciences, humanities, sciences, and social sciences—describe how they actively incorporate diversity into their teaching. Different strategies discussed include a role-model approach, creating a safe space in the classroom, and the cultural competency model. Written for teaching faculty in all disciplines of higher education, this book offers practical guidance on culturally inclusive course design, syllabus construction, textbook selection, and assessment strategies. In addition, examples of diversity initiatives are detailed at six institutions: Duquesne University, Emerson College, St. Louis Community College, University of Connecticut, University of Maryland University College, and University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill. This book also contains an overview of the following areas: Diversity as an integral component of college curricula Structuring diversity-accessible courses Practices that facilitate diversity across the curriculum Diversity and disciplinary practices
