Researching Young Children's Lived Experiences of Loneliness: Pedagogical Implications for Linguistically Diverse Students.
Kirova-Petrova, Anna
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v46 n2 p99-116 Sum 2000
Interviews with 10 linguistically diverse elementary students revealed that they felt lonely because they could not communicate with their peers. Loss of self-esteem and development of learned helplessness syndrome were directly related to length of time they experienced loneliness. Teacher's nonverbal communication and social interactions that do not require English can reduce such loneliness. (Contains 48 references.) (Author/TD)
