An Educator's Guide to Dual Language Instruction: Increasing Achievement and Global Competence, K-12 by Gayle Westerberg & Leslie Davison

This user-friendly book is a key resource for teachers and administrators to ensure their school's success in implementing and maintaining a dual language program. Authors Gayle Westerberg and Leslie Davison share their own experiences leading a dual language school, the obstacles they overcame, and the best practices they learned along the way. The book is filled with step-by-step instructions and strategies you can try immediately, as well as inspirational stories from educators in urban and rural dual language programs across the country.
