Event Description

In this sixth and final webinar of our 2010-2011 series on English language learners, Kathryn Lindholm-Leary, Professor in the College of Education, San José State University, and Fred Genesee, Professor in the Psychology Department at McGill University in Montréal, discuss dual language programs for English learners; that is, programs that use both English and another language to teach oral and written language as well as academic content. After briefly describing these models, they will explore the importance of oral language skills, and the influence of native language oral and literacy skills for the development of English literacy skills. Genesee and Lindholm-Leary will then reflect on research findings on English learners’ academic achievement in dual language programs and on the influence of certain learner or school characteristics on student outcomes. The presenters will discuss issues of program implementation and will share examples from the field to illustrate their discussion.
