The increase in the number of international students attending English-dominant schools brings benefits as well as challenges for institutions. Shapiro, Farrelly, and Tomaš provide a lively, informative discussion that answers the questions instructors commonly ask when seeking to ensure success for these students: What do I do to help students be successful in U.S. academic culture? How can I ensure that the content for my course is comprehensible to students who are still learning English? How do I design assignments and assessments that are fair while still acknowledging the difficulty of doing academic work in a second or foreign language? How might I treat international students as a linguistic and cultural asset in the classroom, and help them to become institutionally integrated? 

The second edition of this best-selling book is filled with anecdotes, reflection questions, strategies, resources, and activities that can easily be adapted to curricula in various disciplines and provide instructors, as well as academic advisors and administrators, with tools for responding to common classroom challenges.

**This title also includes a companion website with online resources.**
