Considering Trilingual Education. Routledge Research in Education
Henn-Reinke, Kathryn
Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group
Based in case studies conducted in the US, Europe, and Latin America, this book explores the feasibility and benefits of trilingual/multilingual education in the United States. Currently, there are few programs in the country of this nature, as educators tend to conclude that English-language learners would be overwhelmed by study in additional languages. Henn-Reinke builds an argument supporting trilingual education in the US, discussing issues of identity, curriculum, pedagogy, and the impact of other psycho-socio-linguistic factors. The following chapters are contained in this book: (1) Trilingualism; (2) Hamelin/Laie Schools, Barcelona: Education in Castellano, English, and Catalan; (3) American School of Barcelona: Education in Castellano, English, and Catalan; (4) Colegio Pestalozzi, Buenos Aires: Education in Spanish, German and English; (5) Riverview Elementary School, San Diego, CA: Education in Spanish, English and Mandarin Chinese; (6) Awareness of Trilingual Immigrant Experiences in the U.S.; (7) Conclusions. Also included is a Trilingual Education Program: Planning Workbook.
