In other words : the science and psychology of second-language acquisition by Ellen Bialystok( Book )

18 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and held by 798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ellen Bialystok and Kenji Hakuta view second-language acquisition as one way of coming to grips with the fundamental nature of language, mind, and brain. Although they have conducted some of the key research in the area of second-language acquisition, they also work more broadly in the fields of cognitive and language development as well as in education policy, and thus they are ideally suited to address this issue. Using an array of vivid illustrations, lively anecdotes, and fascinating research examples, they show how five elements - brain, language, mind, self, and culture - make up the complex ecology of language learning. The book considers vital questions: Is the brain "hard-wired" for language learning? Why are the mental operations that allow us to learn language different from those we use to solve math problems or play a musical instrument? How do differences between languages affect language learning? What are various cultures doing to encourage bilingualism?

Improving schooling for language-minority children : a research agenda by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

14 editions published between 1900 and 2001 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is the culmination of a process that began in 1994, at a planning meeting to determine whether there was a sufficient knowledge base to inform the development of a research agenda on the education of language minority children. A committee was established to review what is known about the linguistic, cognitive, and social processes involved in the education of English language learners. Published information was reviewed in the areas of language, literacy, learning, and social processes, assessment and evaluation, studies of effective instruction and teacher education, and national education statistics. Infrastructure issues were addressed through a primary data collection effort. The report shows that considerable knowledge is available about educating English language learners and bilingual students. Findings about the state of knowledge and research needs are summarized in the following chapters: (1) "Overview"; (2) "Bilingualism and Second-Language Learning"; (3) "Cognitive Aspects of School Learning: Literacy Development and Content Learning"; (4) "The Social Context of School Learning"; (5) "Student Assessment"; (6) "Program Evaluation"; (7) "Studies of School and Classroom Effectiveness"; (8) "Preparation and Development of Teachers Serving English-Language Learners"; (9) "Estimating Population Parameters"; (10) "Issues Related to the Research Infrastructure"; and (11) "Priorities for Research." Four appendixes discuss the research infrastructure, interviews conducted, funded research activities, and committee sources. Each chapter contains references. (Contains two tables). (Sld)

How long does it take English learners to attain proficiency? by Kenji Hakuta( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document discusses research findings related to the question of how long language minority students need special services such as English-as-a-Second-Language (esl) courses or bilingual education before they develop oral and academic English proficiency. It draws conclusions based on a study of four different school districts, two in California and two in Canada. Academic English proficiency refers to the ability to use English in academic contexts, which is particularly important for long-term success in school. The data were used to analyze various forms of English proficiency as a function of length of exposure to English. The clear conclusion emerging from the data is that even in the two California districts that are considered the most successful in teaching English to limited-English-proficient (lep) students, oral proficiency takes 3 to 5 years to develop and academic English proficiency can take 4 to 7 years. Results in Canada were similar. Only one of these three districts offered bilingual education, something that critics often charge delays English acquisition. Analysis also revealed a widening academic performance gap between lep students and native English speakers. It simply may not be possible to offer adequate language instruction to limited English students within the time allotted during the normal school day, and after school or summer instruction may be needed. Results suggest that policies that assume rapid acquisition of English and call for sheltered English programs lasting no more than 1 year, such as Proposition 227 in California, are wildly unrealistic.
