This book 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 contextsa list of key terms and acronyms
  • a composite list of all the essentials.

Editorial Reviews

?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
