In this three-day professional development institute, Cheryl Urow will introduce the powerful notion of the Bridge to teachers, administrators, and leadership teams from dual language programs. The Bridge is the instructional moment when teachers bring the two languages together, strategically guiding bilingual learners to transfer academic content they have learned in one language to the other, engage in contrastive analysis, develop academic English and Spanish across content areas, read and write grade-level texts across the curriculum, and develop metalinguistic awareness. This third consecutive event is an opportunity for schools and districts to continue building their capacity by sending coaches and teachers who have not yet had this particular training experience. 

Institute includes breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack.
