Introduction to Teaching for Biliteracy and the Bridge 2-Day Fall Institute

Join biliteracy educators from across the country in:

  • An overview of the strategic use of Spanish (or other non-English languages) and English and teaching for biliteracy in dual language immersion programs, one-way and two-way immersion programs, and developmental bilingual programs.
  • Best practices in teaching Spanish (or other non-English language) and English literacy
  • Strategies that support translanguaging, making cross-linguistic connections and the Bridge between languages
  • Instructional practices specific to teaching language, literacy and content in each language
  • Biliteracy maps and biliteracy unit frameworks (BUF) for developing and delivering standards-based bilingual units of instruction that integrate the teaching of language and content
  • Programmatic and curricular structures for supporting biliteracy instruction
