Sollars, Valerie; Pumfrey, Peter D.
International Journal of Early Years Education, v7 n2 p141-57 Jun 1999
Compared effects of a reciprocal model and a transmission model on 6-year olds' learning of English as a second language. Found that older 6-year olds performed significantly better than younger 6-year olds on receptive vocabulary and language and on reading accuracy and comprehension. The reciprocal model of teaching and learning had positive effects on receptive vocabulary and language and on speaking skills. (Author/KB)
