TWI Bulletin #9: New TWI Resources (9/6/2001)

As you get back into the swing of the school year, check out two new resources on the CAL Two-Way Immersion web site: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and a Two-Way Bibliography!

The FAQ page, located at http://www.cal.org/twi/faq.htm, provides information about a variety of issues in two-way immersion education, such as program implementation, students' academic achievement, and teachers' professional development.

The Bibliography, located at http://www.cal.org/twi/bib.htm, lists over 100 journal articles, books, research reports, and other resources on Two-Way Immersion. The bibliography is broken down into 16 categories for easy reference, but you can also access an alphabetical list of all of the references at http://www.cal.org/twi/bib_all.htm.

In addition, the TWI Directory was recently updated, and now contains 260 programs. You can access the Directory at http://www.cal.org/twi/directory/

Please let us know if you have any suggestions for our FAQ or bibliography! Our main TWI page is http://www.cal.org/twi, and you can e-mail us at twi@cal.org.



New Book from Multilingual Matters (http://www.multilingual-matters.com):

DUAL LANGUAGE EDUCATION
June 2001
Kathryn J. Lindholm-Leary (San Jose State University)

Dual language education is a program that combines language minority and language majority students for instruction through two languages.  This book provides the conceptual background for the program and discusses major implementation issues.  Research findings summarize language proficiency and achievement outcomes from 8000 students at 20 schools, along with teacher and parent attitudes.
