4 Presentation Summary  Dual Language Enrichment (DLE) models of education not only continue to demonstrate high academic success for all learners, but enhance cognition of these learners, as well.  This is because DLE programs inherently are gifted education programs using the same instructional strategies.  All students have the potential to be gifted and talented if they are engaged as such.  This session will illustrate how well implemented DLE programs use gifted education strategies.

6 National Association for Gifted Children Programming Educators regularly use multiple alternative approaches to accelerate learning Educators regularly use enrichment options to extend and deepen learning opportunities within and outside of the school setting Educators regularly use multiple forms of grouping, including clusters, resource rooms, special classes, or special schools Educators regularly use individualized learning options such as mentorships, internships, online courses, and independent study Educators regularly use current technologies, including online learning options and assistive technologies to enhance access to high- level programming Administrators demonstrate support for gifted programs through equitable allocation of resources and demonstrated willingness to ensure that learners with gifts and talents receive appropriate educational services.

7 National Association for Gifted Children Learning Environments Educators maintain high expectations for all students with gifts and talents as evidenced in meaningful and challenging activities Educators provide opportunities for self-exploration, development and pursuit of interests, and development of identities supportive of achievement, e.g., through mentors and role models Educators create environments that support trust among diverse learners Educators provide feedback that focuses on effort, on evidence of potential to meet high standards, and on mistakes as learning opportunities Educators provide examples of positive coping skills and opportunities to apply them Educators understand the needs of students with gifts and talents for both solitude and social interaction Educators provide opportunities for interaction with intellectual and artistic/creative peers as well as with chronological-age peers Educators assess and provide instruction on social skills needed for school, community, and the world of work.

8 National Association for Gifted Children Learning Environments Educators model appreciation for and sensitivity to students’ diverse backgrounds and languages Educators censure discriminatory language and behavior and model appropriate strategies Educators provide structured opportunities to collaborate with diverse peers on a common goal Educators provide opportunities for advanced development and maintenance of first and second language(s) Educators provide resources to enhance oral, written, and artistic forms of communication, recognizing students’ cultural context Educators ensure access to advanced communication tools, including assistive technologies, and use of these tools for expressing higher-level thinking and creative productivity.
