Abstract

This book describes the background and outcomes of a Dutch-Norwegian comparative research project concerning education for pupils from language minorities. In this study, language minority pupils or children refer to pupils belonging to new, i.e., non-indigenous language groups in Norway and the Netherlands. The project was mainly carried out in two multilingual primary school classrooms, one in the Netherlands and one in Norway. Classroom case studies employing an ethnographic research methodology were used to describe and understand the ways in which teachers and pupils deal with aspects of multilingualism and create opportunities for language learning in their day-to-day practices.
