Reading Comprehension in First and Second Languages of Immersion and Francophone Students.
Carey, Stephen T.
Canadian Journal for Exceptional Children, v3 n4 p103-08 1987
Studies on reading comprehension for bilingual students are reviewed to examine the importance of first-language mastery prior to second-language acquisition. Immersion program factors analyzed include automaticity, plateau effects, need for a variety of sociolinguistic settings, oral facility versus cognitive academic linguistic abilities, and supralinguistic storage of prior knowledge.
