Meeting the Challenges of 
Immersion Education:

Teacher Collaboration for Integrating Language and Content in Grades 5–12

July 18–22, 2016

Important note: Teachers will only be able to register in pairs.

Target Audience: 
Language and content teachers in middle and high school immersion programs.

The integration of language and content is considered to be essential for effective immersion pedagogy and yet continues to prove challenging for immersion teachers, particularly at the middle and high school levels. The purpose of this institute is to engage teachers in reflection on the challenges that hinder an integrated approach and on feasible ways of overcoming them. Specifically, the institute is designed for pairs of immersion teachers from middle or high schools who 
teach the same group of students, with at least one partner teaching immersion language arts and the other a content area through the immersion language. Participants will have the opportunity to become more familiar with their partner's curriculum and to identify connections and overlaps in ways that will facilitate collaborative efforts to create coherence across the curriculum. Models of teacher collaboration will be explored to guide partner teachers in co-designing integrated units that begin in one class and continue in the other with the dual goal of improving students' academic language abilities and strengthening their ability to process curricular content at increasingly challenging levels.
