Dual-Language Immersion K-12 Teaching
DLI Principles and Research Findings
Articulate theoretical principles and research findings about dual language education, including research about best teaching and program organizational practices.
Planning and Curriculum
Create lessons that include objectives in content and language that correspond to subject/curriculum guidelines and student proficiency levels. Create, select, and modify curriculum and materials for use in immersion programs.
Manage the classroom in the immersion language, making input comprehensible and sustaining a clear and consistent separation of languages. Scaffold activities to provide opportunities for student output in the immersion language and elicit specific language functions and forms.
Implement content (literacy, math, science, social-studies, culture, etc.) and language instruction that demonstrates core immersion education teaching strategies and follows a gradual release from guided to independent practice that is then appropriately evaluated in a variety of ways.
