On the Relationship of Language Dominance and the Effects of Viewing CARRASCOLENDAS.
Williams, Frederick; Van Wart, Geraldine
A study was made of the relationship between the language dominance of a child and the effects of viewing a bilingual television program called Carrascolendas. A previous study showed that the program did have an effect on average knowledge gains among viewers. In order to ascertain whether these gains were in some way related to the language dominance of the child, an index was constructed to determine the child's language dominance--Spanish, English, or bilingual. When this index was correlated with gains made as a result of viewing the program, no significant evidence was found that the effects of viewing Carrascolendas were related to, or dependent upon, the child's language dominance.
