Schools should help the children of immigrants become truly bilingual | ¡CHISPA!  Dual Language Education | Scoop.it
Many students in Los Angeles, from kindergarten through college, speak a language other than English because they grew up hearing it. They are “heritage speakers,” the children of immigrants who communicate at home in their parents' native language. Yet many of these students have no literacy in the language they speak. And that is a problem.

Not just better for English language development -- but for surpassing NCE scores of mainstream English-only students in mathematics and reading for more than 2 decades!

The Case for Expansive Learning with Bilingual Education | Arts & Humanities

What is expansive learning and can we apply it to bilingual schools around NYC? @TeachersCollege http://t.co/DU0q3ReB34

Dennis Swender's curator insight, December 3, 11:32 AM

On part with earlier U. S. Department of Education Academic Excellence Projects and content-based Special Alternative Education Programs for English Language Learners (ELLs), this project demonstrates one of the best current implementations for the expansion of effective ELL pedagogy and equitable learning opportunities -- especially designed to assist monolingual teachers in working with bilingual enriched students.  As evidence from past and current ELL studies continues to confirm, ELL students benefit greatly (e.g., by achieving above the 50th NCE on standardized math and reading tests) when ELL instruction primarily focuses on 1) the integration of science and art concepts to attain English literacy and 2) expanding the knowledge that ELLs possess as a consequence of being given the opportunities to convey different cultural perspectives and expectations.

 

The research investigations of  Martinéz-Roldán and colleagues in this project aligns with current course concepts expressed in Banks, Kozol, Spring, Bronowski, Heath, Cummins, Crawford, Gorski, and Warren & Rosebery narratives, as well as with internationally acclaimed second language acquisition research and theories advocated by Cummins, Crawford, Wong-Filmore, Ramirez, Swain, McNamara, Ortiz and Collier/Thomas.
