      This is not a new publication (as a number of you certainly know) but
      I'm just coming across it and thought it merited mention:

      Multicultural and Multilingual Literacy and Language: Contexts and
      Practices
      By Fenice B. Boyd, Cynthia H. Brock, Mary S. Rozendal, Lisa Delpit
      Contributor Mary S. Rozendal, Lisa Delpit
      Edition: illustrated
      Published by Guilford Press, 2003

      Within a clear conceptual framework, this book explores ways that
      teachers, reading specialists, administrators, and teacher educators
      can provide more effective literacy instruction to K/n-/9 students
      from diverse ethnic, cultural, and linguistic backgrounds.
      Cutting-edge theory and research is interwoven with detailed case
      studies that bring to life the complexities of teaching in today's
      multicultural and multilingual classroom. Topics covered include:

      *How and why culture matters in literacy instruction
      *Drawing on students' multiple literacies in the classroom
      *Motivating and engaging English-language learners
      *Steps that teachers can take to heighten their cultural awareness and
      skills
      *Tapping into family and community resources for literacy learning
