Educating Language-Minority Children: Challenges and Opportunities.
Bowman, Barbara T.
Phi Delta Kappan, v71 n2 p118-20 Oct 1989

Thoughtful teachers can use child development principles to make the new context of school meaningful, to attach new kinds of learning to what children have already achieved, and to safeguard children's growing self-image and self-confidence as their knowledge and skills expand.
