Title: The Intentionality Model and Language Acquisition
Subtitle: Engagement, Effort and the Essential Tension in Development
Written By: Lois Bloom
Erin Tinkler
URL: http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/book.asp?ref=1405100893&site=1
Series Title: Monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development
Description:

The Intentionality Model builds on the child's engagement in a world of
persons and objects, the effort that learning language requires, and the
essential tension between engagement and effort that propels language
acquisition. According to this perspective, children learn language in acts
of expression and interpretation; they work at acquiring language; all
aspects of a child's development contribute to this process.
