16 ILT Language Learning Model Elementary

17 Language Learning Model Glossary of Terms
K-5 Two-Way Dual Language Immersion (DLI) Foreign Language in the Elementary School (FLES) 6-12 Languages Other Than English (LOTE) Two-Way Dual Language Immersion (DLI): DLI is the program by which all K-5 students will acquire language (Spanish & English) through the content areas (Reading Language Arts/ Math/ Science/ Social Studies). It is Two-Way because English language learners will learn alongside Spanish language learners. Foreign Language in the Elementary School (FLES) ILTexas students will acquire Chinese through our FLES program using immersion methods. Languages Other Than English (LOTE) This term refers to the program by which our 6-12 students will acquire Spanish and Chinese through different course offerings/ class periods throughout the day.

18 ILT Language Learning Model
Trilingual Education K-12: Students attending International Leadership of Texas will receive academic instruction in English, Spanish, and Chinese. Students in Kindergarten through 5th grade will participate in a dual language program (Spanish/ English) as well as participate in Chinese language development classes through their specials classes (FLES). Students in 6th through 12th will receive daily language development instruction in Spanish and Chinese as part of their academic instructional schedule (LOTE).

19 Our Model All Content areas are taught in both English and Spanish through our Dual Language Immersion (DLI) Model and in conjunction with our Chinese FLES model.

20 Guiding Principles of DLI
Strand 1: Assessment and Accountability. Strand 2: Curriculum Strand 3: Instruction Strand 4: Staff Quality and Professional Development Strand 5: Program Structure Strand 6: Family and Community Strand 7: Support and Resources

21 Benefits of Learning Another Language…

22 Our Model is Research Based
(Thomas & Collier, 2002)

23 What is Two-Way Dual Language Immersion (DLI)?
Additive & Enrichment bilingual model Two languages are valued equally Monolingual delivery Teachers provide low-risk, highly supportive learning environment Focus is on biliteracy, bilingualism, and multi-culturalism Our DLI model is a 50/50 model whereas students will receive instruction in all subject areas in both Spanish and English Highly comprehensible input coupled with highly comprehensible output We acknowledge that our students will be coming to us at varying language levels. As such, we have adjusted our model accordingly and have a 5 year implementation plan.

24 Five Year Implementation Plan
Grade % Spanish % English Kinder 50 50/50 all subjects/ alternating daily (i.e., AM English/ PM Spanish, then switching the following day to AM Spanish/ PM English) 1st 2nd – 5th Modified Dual Language Program

25 Every 6 weeks’ grading period, student’s language levels are assessed to track the development of both the Chinese and Spanish languages (and English if ELL). ACTFL Language levels (12) are as follows: Distinguished, Superior, Advanced High, Advanced Mid, Advanced Low, Intermediate High, Intermediate Mid, Intermediate Low, and Novice High, Novice Mid, Novice Low, and 0.

28 Mandarin Chinese K-12 The goal of IL Texas is that our students (starting with us from elementary) be fluent in reading, writing, listening, and speaking Mandarin Chinese. Our objective is for every one of our students to successfully complete Chinese I, Chinese II, Chinese III, and AP Chinese IV or Dual Credit College Chinese I by the end of their 12th grade year.

29 Language Proficiency Assessment System
Student’s language proficiency will be assessed in the following four domains: Listening Speaking Reading Writing

30 ILTexas Evaluation and Accountability

Language and communication are at the heart of the human experience. The United States must educate students who are linguistically and culturally equipped to communicate successfully in our increasingly more global world. This imperative envisions a future in which ALL students will develop and maintain proficiency in English and another language. In the case of ILT, our kids will be proficient in English and two other languages, Spanish and Chinese. National Standards on Foreign Language Education-American Council on Teaching Foreign Languages

32 Five C’s Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities—the five C’s of foreign language education. Because at ILTexas we don’t just teach language!
