Instructional Programs for ELLs

Hi everyone,
For the next few Wednesdays I am blogging  about the different programs offered to second language learners.

Today let’s look at Two Way Immersion Programs.
According to the Oregon Department of Education – Office of Learning – Equity Unit,  Two Way Immersion Programs are described as:

Two-Way immersion programs integrate language minority and language majority students, providing instruction in both English and the native language of the language minority students.  The structure of these programs varies, but they all integrate students for most content instruction and provide this instruction in the non-English language for  a significant portion of the school day.  Two-way bilingual immersion programs strive to promote bilingualism and biliteracy, grade-level academic achievement, and positive cross-cultural attitudes and behaviors in all students.

There you have it!  Check back next Wednesday for –  Transitional Bilingual Programs!

Happy Teaching!
