Reviews
As communicative competence becomes a more focused goal for classrooms across the U.S., student progress in developing higher levels of proficiency becomes increasingly important. . . Students need a long sequence of well-articulated language learning that begins in elementary school.

About the Author(s)

Hazel Young Hasegawa is ethnically Chinese and grew up in her birthplace, the state of Hawaii. As an elementary classroom teacher with college minors and study abroad programs in Mandarin Chinese, she explored and experimented with Mandarin programs in the elementary school. Upon retirement from the Hawaii Department of Education as an Assistant Principal, she completed her doctoral studies in Curriculum Studies and Teacher Education at the University of Hawaii Manoa and provided professional development for those teaching Mandarin. She has incorporated in her publication an approach which helps teachers to apply language learning theories, to communicate with parents, and to sustain the interest of children through experiential learning. Once teachers have made the process visible for themselves, they are able to expand and build upon it to use in their particular program models, curricula, and school contexts.
