Immersion 101:
An Introduction to Immersion Teaching

July 11–15, 2016 (Teacher Session)
July 11–13, 2016 (3-day Admin Session)

Target Audience
Designed for preservice and novice K–12 immersion teachers, administrators, district personnel or policy-makers, and specialist teachers in immersion schools. Not for experienced immersion teachers.

A must for new immersion teachers and administrators, this institute provides an introduction to the challenges, options, and issues in the unique world of immersion education (K–12). The institute is distinctively organized to address the needs of a diverse audience. On the first two days the focus will be on issues of interest to new immersion teachers and administrators with discussion groups by program role and Immersion 101 Instructional Team responsibilities. On the third day teachers and administrators meet in different groups.

Administrators will spend their final day with a veteran immersion principal and address specific leadership competencies needed to develop, implement, and operate a strong language immersion program/school. During days three to five, teacher participants will have extended time to plan for curricular and instructional innovation in their own settings. With concurrent teacher sessions there will be additional opportunities to differentiate by program model, language of instruction, and grade-level.
