Abstract:
			
This book describes the development process and dynamics of change in
the course of implementing a two-way bilingual immersion education
program in two school communities. The focus is on the language and
literacy learning of elementary-school students and on how it is
influenced by parents, teachers, and policymakers. P�rez provides
rich, highly detailed descriptions, both quantitative and qualitative,
of the change process at the two schools involved, including student
language and achievement data for five years of program implementation
that were used to test the basic two-way bilingual theory, the
specific school interventions, and the particular classroom
instructional practices.

The contribution of Becoming Biliterate: A Study of Two-Way Bilingual
Immersion Education is to provide a comprehensive description of
contextual and instructional factors that might help or hinder the
attainment of successful literacy and student outcomes in both
languages. The study has broad theoretical, policy, and practical
instructional relevance for the many other U.S. school districts with
large student populations of non-native speakers of English.

This volume is highly relevant for researchers, teacher educators, and
graduate students in bilingual and ESL education, language policy,
linguistics, and language education, and as a text for master's- and
doctoral-level classes in these areas.
