Tse, Lucy
Harvard Educational Review, v71 n4 p676-708 Win 2001
A study of 10 U.S. born or raised bilinguals literate in English and their heritage language shows that biliteracy is aided by (1) perceived language vitality from parental, institutional, or peer support for cultural identity and (2) access to heritage-language literacy environments. The social nature of literacy development was affirmed. (Contains 96 references.) (SK)
