Spanish Literacy and the Academic Success of Latino High School Students: Codeswitching as a Classroom Resource.
Nichols, Patricia C.; Colon, Manuel
Foreign Language Annals, v33 n5 p498-511 Sep-Oct 2000
Bilingual Latino high school students who studied Spanish as an academic subject demonstrated a heightened awareness of how to use their two languages as complementary resources in school and professional settings. A case study traces one student's literacy development in Spanish over 4 years and her ability to use it as a resource in her development of academic English in a college setting. (Author/VWL)
