Summary Dual immersion, a popular new way to foster bilingualism, is capturing the attention of parents and educators alike. By bringing together children from diverse backgrounds to learn each other's languages in a natural setting, it has proved far more effective at cultivating fluency than traditional approaches. Depicting a year in the life of a second-grade classroom, this volume demonstrates what can happen when the instruction is bilingual, and the curriculum is constructivist. -- Publishers description
