Enhancing second language acquisition in the elementary classroom

by Thirkell, Deanna

Abstract

Students who have the opportunity to learn another language in elementary school are not only shown to score higher on standardized tests in math and English language arts, but will also increase their fluency through daily exposure to a world language in a variety of avenues in the classroom, through availability of literature in the second language, and through partnering with students of a different grade level to explore the language together.
