Abriendo brecha: Antología crítica sobre la educación bilingüe de doble inmersión

Dual Language Education of New Mexico and Fuente Press have released Abriendo brecha: Antología crítica sobre la educación bilingüe de doble inmersión. Written entirely in Spanish, this book features twelve chapters written by a who’s who of experts in the field of dual-language education. This inspiring book is intended for use in the preparation of dual-language education teachers.

“Finally, bilingual teachers in the U.S. have a comprehensive guide in Spanish! Abriendo brecha conveys all of the key concepts of bilingual education—the ideological, historical, pedagogical, and professional—in an accessible way. It’s a wonderful resource for preparing bilingual teachers through bilingual strategies, thus helping them to develop academic language and professional vocabulary in Spanish as well as in English. I congratulate the authors and DLeNM for this important work.” –Dr. Elizabeth Howard, University of Connecticut
