Title: Language Use in the Two-Way Classroom
Subtitle: Lessons from a Spanish-English Bilingual Kindergarten
Written By: Renee DePalma
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847693006
Series Title: Bilingual Education and Bilingualism
Description:

Based on an extended ethnographic study of a dual language
(Spanish-English) Kindergarten, this book takes a critical look at
children's linguistic (and non-linguistic) interactions and the ways that
teaching design can help or hinder language development. With a focus on
official "Spanish time", it explores the particular challenges of
supporting the minority language use as well as the teacher's strategies
for doing so. In bilingual classrooms, teachers' goals include bilingualism
as well as academic achievement for all. The children may share these
interests, but have their own agendas as well. This book explores the
linguistic and social interactions that may help, or hinder, these multiple
and sometimes conflicting agendas. How can teachers design educational
practice that takes into consideration broader forces of language hegemony
as well as children's immediate interests?
