4 tools to boost language learning in the classroom

from Education Dive

Recently, New York City School Chancellor Carmen Fariña announced that the city will expand its dual language offerings, making no less than 40 such programs available to K-12 students. According to the New York Times, the programs will primarily aim to get students reading, writing, and talking proficiently in both English and Spanish, with additional offerings available in Japanese, Hebrew, Chinese, French and Haitian-Creole. These additions, set for the 2015-2016 school year, are in line with the shifting attitudes toward bilingual education.
