Building Worlds and Identities: A Case Study of the Role of Narratives in Bilingual Literature Discussions.
Martinez-Roldan, Carmen M.
Research in the Teaching of English, v37 n4 p491-526 May 2003
Investigates use of oral narratives by a Mexican-born girl (Isabela) participating in small group literature discussions in a bilingual second-grade classroom in the U.S. over a year. Examines both the role of narratives in Isabela's discussions of texts and the role of context in shaping her talk. Suggests a notion of achievement that departs from that of policymakers who interpret achievement only in terms of standardized test scores. (SG)
