Fostering Spanish Literacy Development through WIDA SLD Standards

Presented at: CABE 2015

Participants will explore how to foster the development of academic language in emergent bilinguals by building metalinguistic awareness to promote cross-linguistic transfer. The presenter will describe the linguistic similarities and differences between English and Spanish and demonstrate activities aligned to the Spanish Language Development (SLD) standards that assist language learners in making these connections. Using the SLD model performance indicators, participants will participate in hands-on activities designed to raise metalinguistic awareness.
