The Construction of Understanding in a Sixth-Grade Bilingual Classroom.
Heres, Ana Ines
Linguistics and Education, v5 n3-4 p275-99 1993
Analyzed how members of a bilingual sixth-grade class constructed knowledge as they interacted within a particular event of a social studies project. Through classroom observations, a range of features of classroom life were identified that shaped the opportunities students had to construct knowledge, including temporality, interactionals, spaces, positions and positionings, and intertextuality.
