Open to: Grades K-8 Bilingual Teachers and English Language Learner Coaches
Opportunity at a Glance: The Literacy Squared team invites grades K-8 Bilingual Teachers and English Language Learners Coaches to participate in a four-day synchronous institute that will will provide bilingual teachers with pedagogical practices, with a holistic biliteracy framework, that leverage students’ linguistic assets while accelerating biliteracy, language, and content development. While Literacy Squared strategies have been conducted at the K-5th grade level, educators in 6th-8th grade settings are also invited to try out these concepts and strategies in their settings.
Dr. Susan Hopewell and Dr. Jody Slavick will outline the importance of reading, writing, oracy, and metalinguistic development in both languages and discuss ways to make metalinguistic connections between languages.
