Abstract
This study examined the role of the language of vocabulary instruction in promoting English vocabulary in preschool Latino Dual Language Learners (DLL). We compared the effectiveness of delivering a single evidence-informed vocabulary approach using English as the language of vocabulary instruction (English-Culturally Responsive, ECR) versus using a bilingual modality that strategically combined Spanish and English (Culturally and Linguistically Responsive, CLR).
