Sustaining a Dual Language Immersion Program: Features of Success
Alanis, Iliana; Rodriguez, Mariela A.
Journal of Latinos and Education, v7 n4 p305-319 Oct 2008
The promise of dual language education has spurred a movement in the field of bilingual education to shift from remedial programs to enrichment forms of bilingual education. Although research supports the effectiveness of such programs, many programs do not maintain their level of implementation and quickly revert to their original remedial form. This research looks at one elementary campus that has implemented a 2-way dual language program for more than a decade. Findings indicate that pedagogical equity, qualified bilingual teachers, active parent-home collaboration, and knowledgeable leadership contributed to the program's success. (Contains 3 figures.)
