Studied how literacy and identity interacted in the development of approximately 85 Latino/a students in 4 intermediate-grade bilingual classrooms. Findings show that students' bilingual language and literacy knowledge and their understanding of identity have noticeable influences on each other. Identified some ways in which language and literacy were important in maintaining interpersonal relationships for these students. (SLD)
