Discussion 1: Linguistic Diversity

Many children and adolescents have the ability to speak two or more languages. Sadly, this skill is not always seen as an asset but a drawback. Children in the United States who do not speak English as a first language, for example, may be inappropriately discriminated against. As a result, these children and adolescents may face challenges not faced by monolingual English-speaking students or some of their more English-proficient peers.

To prepare:

· Consider the value of knowing a second or other language. 

· Think about possible strategies to counteract those who may perceive second language learners (or non-English speakers in the United States) to be deficient. 

· As you review the Learning Resources, think about how diversity of language is as asset. 

· Think also about assumptions made about multilingual children/adolescents 

Post by Day 3:

Describe at least one advantage and one challenge for child and adolescent development in a multilingual environment. Provide one recommendation to help ameliorate the challenge you identified. 

Discussion 2: Socioeconomic Impacts on Language Development 

As discussed in Week 6, socioeconomic status has far-reaching implications on child and adolescent development. Like so many other areas of development, socioeconomic status plays an important role in language development.

To prepare:

· Consider the impact of socioeconomic status and social class on both positive and negative child and adolescent development and language development. 

· Think about possible long-term effects of socioeconomic status on language development.

· As you review the Learning Resources, think about how language development may differ between socioeconomic groups. 

Post by Day 4:

Explain how socioeconomic factors affect the language development of children and adolescents. Explain how these factors further influence the development of child and adolescent linguistic identities. Finally, explain the potential long-term effects of these factors.
