Interactive Journals in Bilingual Classrooms: An Analysis of Language "Transition."
Garcia, Eugene E.; Colon, Manuel
Discourse Processes, v19 n1 p39-56 Jan-Feb 1995
Discusses the eight-month examination of interactive student-teacher journal entries of first-, third-, and fifth-grade Spanish-English bilingual classrooms. Concludes that students did not make a "transition" from native to second language, instead used a bilingual approach, shifting language in journal entries. Suggests mandatory transitioning of language-minority students may not be an appropriate instructional strategy. (PA)
