Advances in Bilingual Education Research.
Garcia, Eugene E., Ed.; Padilla, Raymond V., Ed.
Papers on theory, technology, and public policy in bilingualism and bilingual education are collected in this volume designed to fill the need for systematic, high quality research related to bilingual populations in the United States. Part 1, "Language and Culture," contains five papers that discuss first and second language development, code-switching, language use, and personality development in multilingual/multicultural populations. Part 2, "Educational Perspectives," presents five papers relevant to practitioners. Topics are specific to teaching and learning and include language use in bilingual classrooms, parents' and educators' opinions about bilingual education, language and culture maintenance, cognitive development of minority children, and a model for teacher supervision in bilingual programs. In the third and final part, "Policy Issues," three papers provide projections on ethnolinguistic group populations, institutionalization of bilingual education, and an analysis of the political context of bilingual education.
