3. Résumé

«Chapter 4 contains the portraits of the participants at School A. Three of the five participants at School A completed the ethnographic study: Ashley, Julie, and Meara. The other two participants, Christine and Roberto, withdrew from the study in the second year and the third year respectively. These identity portraits document experiences in three specific areas that had an impact on the participants’ rapport to identity: family, school, and friends. Here, then, are the portraits of School A participants Ashley, Julie, and Meara.» (p. 77) For each student, a conclusion is drawn that takes into account the influence of family on the development of their linguistic and cultural identity.
