Important Session Information:

Presenter: Dr. Jose Medina

The C6 biliteracy Instructional Framework was designed to specifically align with the research recommendations found in the Guiding Principles for Dual Language Education: Third Edition.  The framework allows dual language teachers to create lessons that allow emergent bilingual students the opportunity to access grade level standards regardless of language proficiency in either program language.  Additionally, the framework fully targets the three goals of dual language, including the often forgotten sociocultural competence goal.  During the two-day workshop, teachers will be engaged in the lesson planning process to specifically meet the needs of students matriculated in dual language programs.


Topics Covered:

The C6 biliteracy Framework will guide the professional development session to include Create, Connect, Collaborate, Communicate, Consider, and Commit.


Target Audience:

Dual language teachers (one-way and two-way), instructional coaches, and dual language support staff.


Program Benefits:

Fidelity to the dual language program structure, using authentic biliteracy instructional practices, and focusing on sociocultural competence are the three items that are needed most for dual language program success.  These are targeted as part of the professional development and follow-up job-embedded coaching.


Participant Gains:

Participants will be able to better serve the needs of emergent bilingual students in dual language programs by fully understanding the three goals of dual language, as well as the research that should drive authentic biliteracy instruction in the dual language classroom.  Additionally, for the first time, teachers in dual language programs will be able to utilize a lesson planning framework specifically designed via a biliteracy lens.



Learning Objectives:

By participating in the professional learning, participants will be able to:


  • Identify effective best practices, based on the available research, in order to effectively facilitate biliteracy instructional practices in the dual language classroom
  • Determine lesson planning components that are needed to effectively create access to grade level standards through the use of academic and social language
  • Plan for a culturally-responsive lesson that will serve as the foundation for all other instructional planning in the dual language classroom
