Course Description:

Participants will develop their teacher toolkit of metalinguistic awareness strategies for bilingual and dual language students.   Language development in bilingual programs must make explicit connections between students' two languages and cultures. Learning in two languages must incorporate the similarities and differences in phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics in both languages.   Strategies that will be introduced in this one-day session include:  Academic Conversations (Jeff Zwiers), Bridging (Teaching for Biliteracy) Asi se dice (Literacy Squared) and Visible Thinking (Project Zero).  Sample lesson plans and videos of students engaged in these strategies will be shared during this session.  While this professional development opportunity is geared towards Spanish and English at the elementary level, the strategies would be useful with any two languages and could be modified for dual language learners at any grade.
Audience: PK-12 teachers in dual language programs
