Based on an extended ethnographic study of a dual language (Spanish-English) Kindergarten, this book takes a critical look at childrens linguistic (and non-linguistic) interactions and the ways that teaching design can help or hinder language development. With a focus on official Spanish time, it explores the particular challenges of supporting the minority language use as well as the teachers strategies for doing so. How can teachers design educational practice that takes into consideration broader forces of language hegemony as well as childrens immediate interests?
