Language Development Annenberg/CPB, 1990. 30 minutes.

You Must of Been a Bilingual Baby Filmmakers Library, 1992. 46 minutes. This program investigates how babies become bilingual, how school children fare in immersion programs, and how adults cope with learning a foreign language. The film presents several bilingual families and takes us to a classroom where Spanish and English- speaking children learn together while developing a sense of pride in their respective cultures. The Infant Mind Insight Media, 1992. 30 minutes. This fascinating video presents traditional Piagetian perspectives of object permanence during the sensorimotor period.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
