Do early literacy skills in children's first language promote development of skills in their second language?: An experimental evaluation of transfer

A study of the moderating effects of children's initial skills in one language on the impact of an intervention designed to improve those skills in a second language, based on data from 94 Spanish-speaking language minority children from 10 classes in a Head Start center in Los Angeles, California, randomly assigned to one of three intervention conditions--the HighScope Preschool Curriculum alone or the HighScope Preschool Curriculum with small-group pull-out instruction, using the activities of the Literacy Express Preschool Curriculum, in either an English-only or English-to-Spanish version
