Provision, Purpose and Pedagogy in a Bengali Supplementary School
Walters, Sue
Language Learning Journal, v39 n2 p163-175 2011
This paper, based on the results of a small pilot study of a Bengali supplementary school, discusses the features of the school in relation to other studies of supplementary "mother-tongue" schools and goes on to explore the pedagogy of the school, its relationship with other sites and spaces of learning and the implications of these for the school. There is a particular focus on the "pull of the English primary school" in the desires and practices of the Bengali school educators.
