Linguistic Interdependence and the Educational Development of Bilingual Children.
Cummins, James
Review of Educational Research, v49 n2 p222-51 Spr 1979
Bilingualism, to be cognitively and academically beneficial, must be based on adequately developed first language skills. Two hypotheses, developmental interdependence and threshold, are integrated into a bilingual education model which treats background, child input, and educational treatment to explain educational outcomes.
