Does Bilingualism Matter for Early Literacy?
Bialystok, Ellen; Herman, Jane
Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, v2 n1 p35-44 Apr 1999
Discusses three areas of development that have been shown to be fundamental to the acquisition of literacy: experience with stories and book reading, concepts of print, and phonological awareness. Research is reviewed in each area, comparing the development of these skills by bilingual and monolingual children. Research has been contradictory regarding whether bilingual children differ from their monolingual peers. (Author/VWL)
