Olivares, Rafael A.
International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, v5 n1 p4-19 2002
Discusses a theoretical framework to educate bilingual learners that links the communicative approach and the constructivist approach to learning with the transfer of knowledge from one language to another. The framework is illustrated in the communication, constructivism, and transference of knowledge (CCT) model where bilingual students use their second language when performing academically in the subject matter areas.
