?Si Se Puede! Academic Excellence and Bilingual Competency in a K-8 Two-Way Dual Immersion Program
Quintanar-Sarellana, Rosalinda
Journal of Latinos and Education, v3 n2 p87-102 2004
The purpose of this article is to describe a school that has successfully prepared its students for a multilingual society using a 2-way bilingual immersion program. Students' high SAT scores, as well as their participation at school and in the community, provide evidence that acquiring 2 languages does not sacrifice academic achievement. Indicators of effective 2-way bilingual immersion programs were used to analyze the effects of this program on students' academic achievement. This article contributes to our knowledge of successful 2-way bilingual immersion programs by identifying additional factors, which are instrumental in the planning of new programs. Key words: two-way dual immersion, bilingual education, Latino education, successful schools, indicators for two-way dual immersion, language acquisition
