Bidirectional Relations Between Early Childhood Bilingualism and Academic, Behavioral, and Social Competence Among Low-Income, Immigrant, English Language Learners in Miami, USA

A Talk by Dr. Adam Winsler


Thursday, October 27, 2016
7:30 PM to 9:00 PM
Merten Hall (formerly University Hall), #3300

Dr. Winsler will discuss his ongoing longitudinal study in Miami Florida which involves longitudinally following over 30,000 ethnically and linguistically diverse (Spanish, English, & Haitian Kreyól as L1) students from age 3 through high school. In addition, a study involving a nationally representative sample of Dual Language Learners (DLLs - from the ECLS-B) will also be discussed which explores differences in the early developmental outcomes of DLL and non-DLL students in the USA, controlling for other relevant contextual variables. Brief reference will also be made to his work on Chinese-English bilingual families and their One-Parent-One Language (OPOL) policies in the home, and bilingual language maintenance and loss over time in non-native and Aboriginal families in Australia.
