Principles to practice approach for EL success

Leading Dual Language Programs
for Student Success:
A CAL Leadership Institute

October 24–26, 2017


8:30 am 3:30 pm ET
Center for Applied Linguistics, Washington, DC

Learn how to create and sustain successful dual language programs to boost student achievement on your campus

This three-day institute is designed to help educators strengthen their leadership of effective dual language programming and prepare bilingual students for college and career success as well as global citizenship.

Guided by CAL’s decades of experience in connecting research to practice, this informative session provides information and tools to help school leaders gain a solid understanding of the benefits of dual language education, explore how they can develop a program that promotes student success on their campus, and increase their impact as leaders.

This session is intended for school and district leaders (to include principals, assistant principals, and teacher leaders) who are seeking to deepen their practical understanding of the positive impact that bilingualism has on student achievement, as well as the importance of ensuring program and language equity, in order to create a campus culture where bilingualism, biliteracy, and multicultural competence thrive.

The CAL publication, Guiding Principles for Dual Language Education, will serve as a framework for knowledge building, planning, and networking with peers.  Participants will leave the institute with a wealth of strategies for long term planning as well as practical hands-on activities that can be implemented right away.

Through the exploration of concrete instructional and programmatic examples, participants will be encouraged to actively reflect, collaborate, and delineate next steps for action to provide all language learners with access to rigorous bilingual content and language instruction to improve student performance.
