Dual Language Program Meets Integrated Collaborative Teaching
Hatheway, Bethany; Shea, Deborah; Winslow, Monica
Journal of Multilingual Education Research, v6 Article 8 p137-151 2015
This article proposes combining dual language programs with integrated collaborative teaching classrooms since both English language learners and special education students use many of the same teaching strategies and because there is a growing culturally and linguistically diverse population and shortage of bilingual special educators. Literature from peer reviewed journals and early childhood education publications support the idea with data from successful dual language programs. In addition, interviews conducted with teachers and principals in current dual language programs (DLP) and integrated collaborative teaching (ICT) classrooms give practical ideas and strategies for running such programs. We also explore how such a program can be implemented and question what changes and recommendations should be made.
