Product Description: This book explores how researchers in different parts of the world deal with the notion of cultural diversity in teacher education programmes. In each of the nine countries presented in this volume (USA, Scotland, Japan, Finland, Colombia, France, New Zealand, Canada, and Mexico) the discussion centres on how individual teachers can be empowered to become professionals who make a difference. Whether teachers are working in bilingual programmes or not, the questions are similar: how they can be supported in their negotiation at the classroom level of language contact and cultural difference, and in their understanding of the interface between top-down policies, language ideologies and changing practices in the face of multilingualism.
Este libro explora la manera como investigadores en distintas partes del mundo se refieren a la noci#65533;n de diversidad cultural en los programas de formaci#65533;n de profesores. En cada uno de los nueve pa#65533;ses referidos en este volumen (Estados Unidos, Escocia, Jap#65533;n, Finlandia, Colombia, Francia, Nueva Zelandia, Canad#65533; y M#65533;xico) la discusi#65533;n se centra en la manera como los profesores individualmente considerados pueden ser empoderados a fin de constituirse en verdaderos agentes de cambio. Sea que los profesores est#65533;n o no vinculados a programas biling#65533;es, la tem#65533;tica sigue siendo la misma: como brindarles apoyo en la interacci#65533;n en el sal#65533;n de clase a nivel de contacto linguistic y diferencia cultural, y en la comprensi#65533;n entre interfaces de pol#65533;ticas impuestas jer#65533;rquicamente, ideolog#65533;a ling#65533;#65533;stica y cambio de pr#65533;cticas.
Ce livre explore la fa#65533;on dont, dans diverses r#65533;gions du monde, les chercheurs interpr#65533;tent la notion de diversit#65533; linguistique dans les programmes de formation des enseignants. Dans chacun des neufs pays repr#65533;sent#65533;s dans ce volume (USA, #65533;cosse, Japon, Finlande, Colombie, France, Nouvelle-Z#65533;lande, Canada et Mexique) la discussion concerne la mani#65533;re dont les enseignants peuvent #65533;tre encourag#65533;s et soutenus dans leur d#65533;veloppement professionnel afin qu'ils puissent agir sur leur contexte #65533;ducatif et s'impliquer dans le changement. Que ces enseignants travaillent dans des programmes bilingues ou pas, les questions restent les m#65533;mes : comment les aider #65533; n#65533;gocier les contacts de langues et les diff#65533;rences culturelles au sein de leur classe, comment les aider #65533; comprendre les liens entre les politiques linguistiques #65533;ducatives, les id#65533;ologies langagi#65533;res, et les nouvelles pratiques p#65533;dagogiques dans le contexte g#65533;n#65533;ral de nos soci#65533;t#65533;s multilingues.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.

Make A Difference

At Campus Book Rentals our company is guided by a single question, "How are we making education more affordable?" We know that getting a college education is quickly becoming a rite of passage for students and is becoming more important every year. In order to make education more attainable for the 99%, we started renting textbooks so students could avoid high purchase prices and buyback programs. We know it's a better way, and we're going to show everyone how to make a college education affordable again.
