One World, Many Languages: Using Dual-Language Books
Leaman, Heather
Social Studies and the Young Learner, v21 n1 p29-32 Sep-Oct 2008
Teaching social studies concepts and skills through an introduction to world languages is a powerful vehicle for student learning. Simultaneously, teachers can increase student awareness of language diversity by teaching students about the world and its many countries and supporting English language learners. Fortunately, for linguistically diverse students and classroom teachers, there are more linguistically diverse resources available. This article offers examples of dual-language books that can be used to prompt powerful social studies learning experiences. (Contains 7 notes.)
