Although it doesn’t give many details on language instruction, maybe some of you will find something of interest in a brochure on immigrant education that I picked up during a visit to Finland. Anecdotally, on the flight on the way back I sat next to a young black Finnish woman who reported being literate in both Finnish and Somali :)

I hope this link for downloading the brochure works:

Subject: [Edling] Suggestions for reading list: Bilingual Development and Second Language Education in Early Childhood

Dear colleagues;

I am in the process of designing a Master's level graduate course that focuses on bilingual development in early childhood. The course will focus on two major themes: (1) processes of child bilingual development, and (2) second language and/or bilingual instruction in early childhood years. Since our graduates mainly work in kindergarten classrooms, the course will examine these issues from preschool years to early elementary grades.

I am currently gathering information by compiling readings, while at the same time, seeking similar course syllabi. In particular, I am looking for relevant textbooks and articles to cover during this 12-week course. I would appreciate if you could share course syllabi, and/or list of readings, textbooks, or articles you might have in mind.

Thanks for your help.

​Best,
