The goal of the Bilingual language arts program program is to provide an
academic environment that is rich in language that will enhance second
language acquisition. Students will be immersed in English with clarification
of skills in native language. They will be exposed to works of fiction,
nonfiction, poetry, plays and short stories. The classes will be based on the
readers and writers workshop approach.. Lessons will be in alignment with
the CCSS. Each class will begin with a mini-lesson, followed by
independent or group work. During the workshop, students will be
introduced to new concepts and will practice writing from different genres.
Students will also engage in peer and teacher conferencing/editing to obtain
constructive feedback for their writing.
Course Objectives:
Students read, comprehend and respond in individual, literal,
critical and evaluative ways to literary, informational, and
persuasive texts in multimedia formats.
Students read and respond to classical and contemporary texts
from many cultures and literary periods.
Students produce written, oral and visual texts to express, develop
and substantiate ideas and experiences.
Students apply the conventions of standard English in oral, written
and visual communication.
