Understanding how language of instruction impacts early literacy growth for Spanish-speaking children

Description:

The purpose of the current study was to examine the relationship between preschool classroom language instruction and early literacy growth in 313 Spanish-English bilingual speaking preschoolers. Results show a significant amount of variability in child growth can be attributed to the classroom level. Rate of growth in early literacy skills did not depend on language of instruction. (author abstract)
