Dual Language Learners

    All:

    I am planning a two day institute in Phoenix, AZ next February on Dual Language Learners.  I am seeking ideas/presenters on how to make this experience hands-on, innovative, and relevant to Head Start/Early Head Start classroom teachers.  Before I reach out to my base of agencies - I thought I would see what new relationships/ideas this forum would generate.

    We would like the content to be have a bit of research, policy, content focused on infants/toddler, preschool, family child care and family engagement strategies too.

    I can be reached at econdon@region9hsa.org.

    Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

    I attended a culture workshop once where the presenter started the lesson by speaking the first slide in Spanish. It really gave me a sense of how children feel in the classroom.
