Mor-Sommerfeld, Aura
Reading: Literacy and Language, v36 n3 p99-105 Nov 2002
Presents a new approach to examining second language writing among young learners, which the author defines as "Language mosaic." Offers a new perspective on the process of writing development and examines how and what children do in the writing process while developing an additional language. Suggests that educators should view the process of new language development in terms of the child's own experience, beliefs and understanding. (SG)
