Long description:
Detailing qualitative research undertaken with elementary-grade children in a Korean heritage language school in the US, this text provides unique insight into the translanguaging practices and preferences of young, emergent bilinguals in a minority language group.
Understanding the Oral and Written Translanguaging Practices of Emergent Bilinguals examines the role of socio-cultural influences on emergent bilinguals' language use and development. Particular attention is paid to the role of immigrant parental involvement and engagement in their bilingual children's language learning and academic performance. Presenting data from classroom audio recordings, writing, and drawing samples, as well as semi-structured interviews with children and parents, the book identifies important implications for the education of emergent bilinguals to better support their overall language and literacy development.
This text will primarily be of interest to doctoral students, researchers, and scholars with an interest in bilingual education, biliteracy, and early literacy development more broadly. Those interested in applied linguistics, the Korean language, and multicultural education will also benefit from this volume.
