Reading in Bilingual Education.
Modiano, Nancy
In a bilingual education program, reading should be introduced in the child's stronger language. Reading in the second language should be delayed until the child has become fully literate in the first language. Ideally that point should be determined for each child individually. The relative emphasis given to reading in each language is based on different factors, basically depending on language role. In the case of newly transcribed languages, the creation of a written literature should be encouraged. (VM)
