Phonological Awareness and Bilingual Preschoolers: Should We Teach It and, If So, How?
Stewart, Mark R.
Early Childhood Education Journal, v32 n1 p31-37 Aug 2004
This article briefly reviews recent research on teaching phonological awareness skills to preschoolers as well as the benefits of different types of bilingual education. A more in-depth analysis of research on cross-language transfer of phonological awareness/metalinguistic skills follows. The major recommendation resulting from this review is that the teaching of phonological awareness skills in both the home language and school language of preschoolers is the preferred intervention.
