Building and Destroying Students' 'Academic Identities': The Power of Discourse in A Two-Way Immersion Classroom
Two-way immersion is a model for bilingual education designed to help language-minority students develop additive bilingualism while at the same time offering language-majority students a chance to learn a second language. The article begins with a brief review of the available research on two-way immersion education.
