Summary

The Two-Way Dual Language Program offers the opportunity for native English speakers and native Spanish speakers to learn to read, write and speak in both languages. This session will give you an overview of how this model promotes language and social equality while supporting full bilingual proficiency for both native and non-native speakers of English. Participants will gain knowledge of how students of both language groups are integrated for most content instruction, how this model fulfills basic and enrichment needs of all students in the classroom, the cross-cultural changes it brings and the accountability growth in standardized testing.
