The Reading Strategies of Bilingual Latina/o Students Who Are Successful English Readers: Opportunities and Obstacles.
Jimenez, Robert T.; And Others
Reading Research Quarterly, v31 n1 p90-112 Jan-Mar 1996
Examines how bilingualism and biliteracy affect metacognition. Finds three strategies unique to successful Latina/o readers: (1) they actively transferred information across languages; (2) they translated from one language to another but most often from Spanish to English; and (3) they openly accessed cognate vocabulary when they read.
