Examining the influence of out-of-school input on the lexical development of early-elementary students in a French-English two-way immersion program
Description of Research Project:
This study will examine the lexical trajectory in French and English of K-1 students enrolled in a TWI program over one calendar year that includes the summer break. Such results will be interpreted in light of the amount and nature of the language input received outside of school, as reported in parental surveys. The purpose of this research is to more fully elucidate the relationship between out of school language input and vocabulary development for students enrolled in a bilingual program.
