The Science of the Bilingual Reading Brain

The Science of the Bilingual Reading Brain | Dual Language Education in the U.S. | Scoop.it
“We are plural. The I is an illusion: bilinguals know this, they are hybrid like the words inside them, surprised halfway on the translation path.” (Jurgenson, 2014, p. 115). Yes, we have always been and will always be plural. That is, until we are taught to divide who we are and what we know. Until we have been diminished to only those words from one language inside us. Yet Jurgenson’s quote highlights not just a theoretical and philosophical stance but a body of evidence that has been confirmed through science. The science of the bilingual reading brain.

Only about 10% of Quebecers use English as their primary language.Many of them argue that recent proposals for language policy in the province—Bill 96, for example—are further consigning Anglophone Quebecers to the margins of Québécois society.According to a recent report in the Montreal Gazette, a group of Anglophone Quebecers has been floating around the idea of forming a provincial political party to advocate for the rights of linguistic minorities in the province, including speakers of English and Indigenous languages throughout Québec.

Could Universal Dyslexia Screening Misclassify English Learners?

Could Universal Dyslexia Screening Misclassify English Learners? | Dual Language Education in the U.S. | Scoop.it
A bill in California’s state legislature would make dyslexia screening universal for young students in the state’s schools. Senate Bill 237 was introduced last spring but has faced several roadblocks in its passage, including opposition from the California Teachers Association. Although the legislation would certainly make dyslexia assessments—which, at the moment, are not mandatory—more widespread, specialists who work with English language learners (ELLs) worry that a universal screening for dyslexia could misidentify ELLs as being at risk for dyslexia. Under SB 237, California students from kindergarten through second grade would undergo a mandatory dyslexia screening, starting in the 2022–2023 school

This two-way communication between school and home served as a lifeline for many students. While the past two years have been challenging for all schools, highly diverse schools have faced additional challenges, particularly regarding parent communication and engagement.
