Having an Experience in Five Acts: Multiple Literacies through Young Children's Opera.
Rossi, Pamela J.
Language Arts, v74 n5 p352-67 Sep 1997
Describes (in the form of an opera libretto in five acts) the experience of creating an opera in a first-grade bilingual classroom. Shows that literacy is not reading and writing, opera is not inaccessible, and art is not a frill. Finds that children made flexible use of sign systems and achieved some degree of bilingualism. (SR)
