Multilingual Literacies in the Primary Classroom: Making the Connections.
Diaz, Criss Jones
This report explores how students' multilingual literacies can become part of everyday classroom practices. It discusses the contribution made by the home language in English language learning and literacy by highlighting the connections between languages in mainstream classroom settings. The strategies highlighted here focus on the representation of languages other than English. An overview of multilingual resources, including bilingual books, electronic resources, and software, is provided. Extensive lists of bookstores; resource centers and libraries; CD-ROMs, interactive stories, and videos; and foreign language Web sites available in Australia are also provided.
