DESCRIPTION: In the garden of DLE instructional frameworks, there are a lot of 'plants' to choose from – SIOP, TWIOP, the Biliteracy Unit Framework, Literacy Squared, the Translanguaging Unit Plan, GLAD, the 6Cs, Counterbalancing... the list goes on and on! How do you decide which one is right for your program? Start by looking beneath the surface to the common instructional roots that all of these approaches share, and the soil of culturally and linguistically sustaining pedagogy that they are all planted in, and commit to keeping your focus there regardless of which approach or combination of approaches your program uses.

DESCRIPTION: Many DLE teachers begin their careers with great enthusiasm but are left wondering what makes DLE instruction different from "good instruction." Coaching teachers can help teachers deepen their understanding of DLE Pedagogy, feel more confident and successful in their classrooms, and more consistently incorporate specific best practices in their daily instruction. Participants will examine and discuss the possible impact different approaches to coaching and will get hands-on practice with a coaching model developed specifically for DLE programs.
AUDIENCE: DLE coaches, coordinators, principals, and teacher-leaders who serve as mentors for their colleagues.

FACILITATOR: Joan Lachance, Assistant Professor and Director of TESL Minor Program, University of North Carolina
DESCRIPTION: The purpose of this collaborative three-day series is to outline and advocate for pathways leading to teacher collaboration for the sake of English Learners/Multilingual Learners (ELs/MLs) in DLE. Together we’ll use some interactive tools to explore a comprehensive framework for collaborative practices that support ELs/MLs across bilingual and dual language education program (BL/DL) models. We’ll make connections to participants’ contexts to include a range of additional programs such as integrated co-teaching, TBE, and ESL services. Finally, we’ll align our work to the Guiding Principles of Dual Language Education, state education agency guidance, and ways to shift mindsets via policy informed advocacy.
