Child language and education by Courtney B Cazden( Book )

18 editions published between 1972 and 1976 in English and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The language a child learns from and attends to is the speech of significant persons in his world, addressed to each other and to him. As the child gradually participates in this social interaction he learns communicative competence, I.E., the nonconscious, tacit knowledge that underlies speech behavior--knowledge of both the language and the social world. Every child has communicative competence; what the teacher works toward is communicative adequacy. Concerned about child language and speech as well as educational practice, this book first begins by devoting a chapter to a discussion on language and then giving the next four chapters to syntax, sounds and meanings, developmental processes, and environmental assistance in language development. From there the focus shifts to language differences and language use: dialects and bilingualism, communicative styles, and the roles of language in cognition. The book ends with a chapter reflecting on oral language in education and an appendix which describes methods of analyzing child language from spontaneous speech and tests. (Hs)

Effective instructional practices in bilingual education by Courtney B Cazden( Book )

7 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Descriptions of seven diverse bilingual education programs focus on instructional practices that have contributed to the programs' effectiveness as measured by exceptional student achievement, trained observers' perceptions of instructional quality, and the pride of professional staff and parents. The program settings and types include these: (1) a small, rural agricultural community in California with carefully proportioned bilingual education from kindergarten through eighth grade; (2) a year-round community school near the California/Mexico border with two-teacher team-taught bilingual education through sixth grade; (3) a barrio school in a large California city, where the program encompasses the entire school; (4) a northern plains Indian reservation, with a program focusing on the written form of the native Indian language; (5) a suburban school in a northeast city, serving a population speaking 30 languages; (6) a large city school with a history of both successful and unsuccessful bilingual education programs, this one serving kindergarten through high school with separation of language groups; and (7) a California city school having both immersion and bilingual programs. Effective instructional features found in the 58 classrooms studied that are shared by bilingual and monolingual education programs alike and features unique to bilingual instruction are outlined and discussed.

The acquisition of Spanish as a first language by Courtney B Cazden( Book )

5 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The acquisition of Spanish as a first language was investigated in a study of eight Puerto Rican children ranging in age from 17-39 months. The speech of the four children studied in Puerto Rico was analyzed in detail and compared with that of the four children taped in Boston. The children's speech was taped in natural situations and analyzed in terms of the accuracy and complexity of the verb system. A common developmental pattern for the acquisition and appearance of the verb system was observed. For most of the children, repetitions seemed to influence verb system development. In comparison with the Boston group, the Puerto Rican group showed more diversity in developmental patterns. In general, the Puerto Rican children were more similar to the Boston children (individually) than to one another. (Author/RW)

Second language acquisition sequences in children, adolescents and adults : Final report by Courtney B Cazden( Book )

7 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this project was to make a preliminary investigation of the processes of second language acquisition by children, adolescents and adults, and to develop a methodology appropriate to the study of second language learning. In the development of the methodology, applicable techniques from first language acquisition research were incorporated and new techniques appropriate specifically to second language acquisition were devised. The research examined the acquisition of English by six Spanish-speaking subjects over a ten-month period. Two subjects were at each of three target ages: 4-6, 11-14 and over 18. Each subject was visited approximately every two weeks and speech samples were recorded in three situations: spontaneous speech recordings, elicitations and pre-planned sociolinguistic interactions. The subjects were "free" second language learners with very little or no prior or current instruction in English. Thus they acquired their second language mainly by exposure to the English-speaking environment. The analysis focused on the acquisition of the English auxiliary and its related structures, the negative and interrogative. A clear developmental pattern was found for both the negative and interrogative. A highly variable order of acquisition was found for the appearance of auxiliaries. (Author)
