Long description:

On Becoming Bilingual: Children?s Experiences across Homes, Schools, and Communities provides a theoretical and methodological introduction to research on children?s participation in and across a multiplicity of activities where they display complex linguistic and sociocultural knowledge.


From a perspective that engages intersections of language, race, and class, the book reviews foundational and recent studies highlighting innovations, trends, and future directions for research. The book offers a helpful set of resources, including guiding questions at the start of each chapter, links to online and bibliographic sources, discussion questions and activities, and a glossary of key terms.


This book is intended for scholars and students in language-oriented fields of study who are interested in learning about how bilingual children engage with, negotiate, and transform their social worlds.



Simultaneously a rigorous account of and a tribute to bilingual children?s agency, knowledge, and creativity, On Becoming Bilingual is a must read for those seeking to understand the complex experiences of children growing up in linguistically diverse environments. Bringing together their experience as researchers of childhood bilingualism in North America and the Caribbean with detailed consideration of contemporary scholarship on bi/multilingualism and immigrant/postcolonial childhoods, Baquedano-López and Garrett offer us a compelling treatise on the social, political, and educational worlds that bilingual children inhabit and help create. Thoughtfully structured for use in graduate and undergraduate seminars, this state-of-the-art volume provides critical tools for discussions of the deficit framings of bilingual children?s skill and knowledge, and of how we can best support them in a dignity-affirming way.
