Intentional integration of content and language is crucial for effective dual language and immersion (DLI) education, particularly in secondary continuation programs where students encounter more complex academic content. This collaborative and interactive three-hour workshop is designed specifically for secondary immersion teachers. Together we will explore the what and why of content and language integration at the secondary level and envision possibilities for collaborating with DLI colleagues from distinct subject areas to integrate content and language in practice. Topics will include: research support for content and language integration; identifying language demands in academic standards, and planning for content and language integration at the lesson level. Teams of secondary DLI teachers are encouraged to register together!
After this workshop you will be able to:
- explain the importance of content and language integration in secondary immersion;
- distinguish content-obligatory language and describe how to determine language to teach within content instruction;
- recognize and take up opportunities for cross-curricular collaboration in content and language instruction; and
- embed integrated content and language instruction into lesson-level planning.
