Why Birdwell Dual Language Immersion School?
Goals of the Dual Language (English & Spanish) Program:
High linguistic proficiency in two languages;
High academic proficiency in two languages;
Positive cross-cultural attitudes - biculturalism.
Language, Literacy & Learning
Language skills are tightly connected to learning literacy. Strong language skills produce proficient readers and writers. We strive daily to instill in our students the ability to talk in complete sentences, increase vocabulary, understand grammatical structures, increase academic content-based language, and speak fluently with clarity.
Literacy skills involve listening, speaking, reading, writing, and thinking. To produce fluent readers and writers we include systematic, and explicit instruction in phonological awareness, phonics, vocabulary, reading fluency, comprehension, grammar and writing. Learning skills include critical and creative thinking, communicating and collaborating.
