Van Heukelem, Tom; Mercado, Maria de Jesus

The lesson has been developed to be taught in a bilingual class, a Spanish-language immersion class, or a two-way bilingual class.

Language levels include pre- and early production, speech emergence, and intermediate fluency. Instructional components are second language development, primary language instruction, specially designed academic instruction in second language, cross-cultural/self-esteem building, and parent/community involvement.
