Featured Speaker Session: Diane Tedick on Dual Language Instruction in the Content Areas: Integrating Content and Language
The fundamental premise underlying dual language instruction is the expectation that students can learn (and teachers can teach) both meaningful content – including academic subject-matter content – and a new language at the same time. The crux of effective dual language teaching (and content-based ESL) is language and content integration – teachers and students have to attend to both content and language if the language learning benefits of dual language education are to be maximized. Yet content and language integration is a pedagogical challenge for teachers.

This presentation will begin with a brief overview of the features and goals of dual language instruction. Then, the talk will identify key teacher characteristics needed for dual language instruction and important roles that dual language teachers play, including the role of language and content integrator. The remainder of the presentation will focus on examples of how teachers can effectively integrate content and language in dual language instruction or content-based ESL.

Form-Focused Content-Based Instruction in the Dual Language Classroom: Part I
This two-session interactive workshop will take teachers through a process of developing an instructional sequence to help dual language learners process language through noticing, awareness, and production activities that are linked to subject matter content. After viewing multiple teacher-developed examples, participants will select a problematic linguistic feature and develop noticing, awareness, and controlled practice activities to help learners better understand and improve their ability to accurately produce the problematic feature. Throughout the process, they will share their ideas and receive feedback from other participants as well as the workshop facilitator. Participants are asked to bring computers and to attend both sessions.

Supporting ALL Students in Dual Language
Students in our dual language programs come from monolingual, bilingual, and trilingual backgrounds and have a wide range of strengths and needs. In this workshop, we’ll share methods for using data to identify dual language learners’ strengths and needs and determine appropriate interventions and supports. We’ll also share specific strategies that we’ve found to be effective for different types of dual language learners for small group instruction as well as scaffolds to differentiate within a diverse classroom.

Using the Dictado for Spanish Language Arts Instruction in an OCDE Project GLAD Unit
The presenter will demonstrate how to use text from a Project GLAD Narrative Input Chart for a set of Dictado lessons. She will walk participants through the daily process of a week's worth of Dictado lessons using the Narrative Input Chart text. Steps in the process include: having students do an initial Dictado of a portion of the text, conducting word study with vocabulary from the passage, presenting a grammar mini-lesson based on the text, asking students to translate the text from Spanish to English, and a having students do a final Dictado at the end of the week as an assessment.

Language Acquisition Strategies to Support Dual Language Programs
In this session we will focus on how to use the OCDE Project GLAD® thematic unit planning for dual language program instruction with OCDE Project GLAD® strategies and the integration of other subject areas such as literacy/math. The tracking of oral language acquisition using OCDE Project GLAD® strategies (such as the ELD Review and Group Frame) aligned with the ALDs will also be a focus. We will show our plan to use formative data to correlate to big picture data and then impact change on instruction. In addition, next steps in our journey to integrate a biliteracy perspective and socio-cultural competency in our program.

Five simple steps to support Spanish reading intervention in bilingual education programs, including dual-language models!
These five simple steps provide a sensible guide with achievable goals for finding a balance between language and literacy development, including strategies to  integrate the use of technology.  Istation Espanol is a one-stop soluton tool that promotes accurate and efficient ways to collect and interpret data, apply results to classroom instruction, and avoid inadvertent crossing of the fine line that divides cognitive ability and language acquisition. More importantly, these five steps introduce a teacher-friendly sequence to ensure educational equity and excellence for second-language learners who are on a successful path toward biliteracy.

Step 1: The Identification Process
Struggling to read or failing to understand?
Step 2: Reading Development
Domains and competencies for Spanish literacy
Step 3: Determining a Target Area
Data sources and grouping students
Step 4: Measuring Results 
Plan instruction based on students’ literacy level
Step 5: Ongoing Monitoring
Closing skill gaps and promoting transferability between languages

Featured Speaker Session: Diana Pinkston-Stewart on Validation and Equity for Emerging Bilingual Students: Shifting Our Perspectives, Practices, and Policies
Over the past five decades, bilingual and dual language programs have been growing in number and evolving in quality across our country.  Today, bilingualism and  biliteracy are not only regarded as a critical tool for success in today’s global environment; research has shown that high-quality dual language programs lead students to higher levels of academic achievement than those students in English-only programs.  Why then are our emerging bilingual students and their language differences often still viewed through a lens of deficit rather than asset?  Let’s examine the work of an innovative biliteracy program, Literacy Squared®, to explore how we can shift from a deficit to an asset approach to support the highest level of achievement for the emerging bilingual students in our classrooms.

Using OCDE Project GLAD(R) Strategies to Promote Mathematical Language and Content Development
Discover how OCDE Project GLAD(R) strategies can be used to closing the opportunity gap for English learners in mathematics. The connections between the language routines in the design principles identified by Understanding Language/Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning and Equity and OCDE Project GLAD ® strategies give us a framework of high-yield routines that are effective in simultaneously developing mathematical language and content development. These routines and strategies increase opportunities for language output and deepen content comprehension. As the noted ,(Zweirs, Dieckmann, Rutherford-Quach, Daro, Skarin, Weiss, Malamut, 2017, pg. 3), “Mathematical understanding and language competence develop interdependently.”
