Young English Language Learners: Current Research and Emerging Directions for Practice and Policy
The chapters in this important book provide up-to-date syntheses of the research base for young ELLs on critical topics such as demographics, development of bilingualism, cognitive and neurological benefits of bilingualism, and family relationships, as well as classroom, assessment, and teacher-preparation practices. Each chapter reviews the research and answers the following questions: What does the research clearly indicate for policy and practice?; How solid is this database and what findings are emerging?; What should the research agenda be for young ELLs?
