Overview

Dual Language Essentials for Teachers and Administrators provides the guiding principles and practices for successful dual language or two-way bilingual education. Authors Yvonne and David Freeman and Sandra Mercuri have worked in and visited dual language schools across the country, and they show you the programs, teachers, and students in different two-way settings.

Based on their extensive research, the authors have developed a set of essentials for dual language programs. These include administrative, administrator and teacher, teacher, curriculum, literacy, planning and assessment essentials. The authors illustrate each topic with stories and specific examples drawn from many different bilingual classrooms.

Freeman, Freeman, and Mercuri explain how to

  • organize classrooms, establish routines, and group students effectively
  • scaffold instruction to build academic concepts and language
  • promote the development of biliteracy
  • make both long- and short-term plans
  • develop lessons that connect to both content and language standards
  • assess student progress.
In addition, the authors have included several useful resources:
  • up-to-date references on research in dual language settings
  • learning extensions at the end of each chapter that readers with ideas readers can apply to their own contexts
  • a list of key terms and acronyms
  • a composite list of all the essentials.
Dual Language Essentials for Teachers and Administrators takes you into dual language schools and classrooms to show how effective programs can help all students develop high levels of academic achievement as they becomes both bilingual and bilterate.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Dual Language Essentials provides vivid portraits of students, teachers, and administrators who are at the center of a growing movement that has the potential to radically transform American education. As the research and practice discussed in this book so clearly demonstrate, all students can develop fluency and literacy in two or more languages if we choose to give them the opportunity. This book is essential reading for all educators who are committed to preparing students to thrive in a global society where knowledge of additional languages is a key component of overall literacy.”–Jim Cummins, University of Toronto, Coauthor of Multilingual Education in Practice

“Anyone beginning a new dual language program or looking to improve an existing program should read this book. Our school used the Freemans' essentials, and they were invaluable for training new staff and changing and improving the current thematic units being used in our dual language curriculum.”–Sharon Royers, Castelar Title VII Grant Coordinator, Omaha, Nebraska

“Teachers and administrators alike will find Dual Language Essentials an invaluable guide to a range of specific instructional strategies that work. Read this book and give your students a gift that lasts. Instruction in two languages promises bilingualism, biliteracy, and a multicultural understanding of the world.”–Shelly Spiegel-Coleman President, California Together and Board Member, Two-Way CABE

“Packed with powerful strategies for the high academic achievement of all students, this essential and comprehensive reference is a must-read for all educators of the twenty-first century. Readable and practical while grounded in research, this definitive overview and implementation guide on dual language programs is destined to become a classic.”–Virginia P. Collier, Ph.D., Professor of Bilingual/Multicultural/ESL Education, George Mason University
