Code-Switching during Shared and Independent Reading: Lessons Learned from a Preschooler.
Bauer, Eurydice Bouchereau
Research in the Teaching of English, v35 n1 p101-30 Aug 2000
Examines the code-switching patterns of a bilingual preschooler involved in English and German shared reading and independent reading. Finds that melodic text reduced code-switching; her view of the task influenced her code-switching; and her code-switching patterns during discussions were similar to talk outside the literacy event. Suggests qualitatively different benefits of highly predictable and literary texts for literacy/language development. (SR)
