Code switching in science classroom?
- Hi, I never wrote any message until today, but I've
enjoyed some of the discussions and questions on this
I am working on middle school science education from
linguistic anthopological perspectives. I have
observed Spanish-English code switching instances in
science classroom. I was wondering if anyone works or
knows some references on the linkage between
sociocognitive work on code switching, or broadly
bilingualism and science educaction.
I'd appreciate any recommendations.
