EDU-560 Dual Language Foundations

4 semester credits
This course will focus on dual language program models, teacher and administrator leadership development, and the sociocultural context of dual language education. Students will examine the critical features of educational programs that develop bilingualism, biliteracy, and academic and cross-cultural competencies. Dual language/two-way bilingual immersion, foreign language immersion, and developmental bilingual education are among the additive program models that will be studied. The instructional process includes program models and support structures for the language allocation, assessment, and evaluation of student academic performance. Effective leadership guided by a clear vision is critical to the success of a school community. Educators in positions of authority are expected to set goals and exercise leadership in ways that make a measurable, positive difference for students. Growing numbers of K−12 schools are striving to establish educational models and nurture administrative and teacher leadership through collaboration. This is especially true in the case of dual language programs that set high academic standards for students. Research indicates that teachers and administrative leaders can have a profound impact on school climate, culture, and educational outcomes. This course will examine educational leadership research, theories, practice, and application in dual language settings.
