DescriptionThis book considers the application of sociocultural theory to understanding how minority language background children learn English in the context of their classrooms. Based on a longitudinal ethnography, it is suggested that understanding the pivotal role of social interaction in learning implies new perspectives both for SLA research and for effective instructional practice.
