"Welcome to Salon 110": The Consequences of Hybrid Literacy Practices in a Primary-Grade English Immersion Class.
Manyak, Patrick C.
Bilingual Research Journal, v26 n2 p421-42 Sum 2002
In a primary English immersion class in California, a teacher resisted Proposition 227's mandated English immersion and the school's linguistic hegemony by blending English and Spanish during reading and writing activities. Hybrid literacy practices facilitated successful literacy acquisition in two languages for many students but did not meet the needs of newly arrived immigrants. (Contains 29 references.) (SV)
