Mexican American Preschoolers Create Stories: Sociodramatic Play in a Dual Language Classroom.
Riojas-Cortez, Mari
Bilingual Research Journal, v24 n3 p295-308 Sum 2000
A study in a south Texas preschool found that Mexican American children, when given the opportunity to engage in sociodramatic play, displayed various language functions needed for the development of early literacy skills. The preschoolers created elaborate monologues and dialogue in their native language (sometimes in their second language), patterned after their cultural knowledge. (Contains 42 references.)
