Inquiry Science in Bilingual Classrooms.
Hampton, Elaine; Rodriguez, Rosaisela
Bilingual Research Journal, v25 n4 p461-78 Fall 2001
A study examined the value of teaching inquiry science in elementary classrooms where students' home language was Spanish. Bilingual interns taught children in 62 El Paso (Texas) classrooms, half in Spanish and half in English. Findings indicate that language skills in both languages increased, new science concepts were understood, and there was little difference between Spanish and English speaking children. (TD)
