Edmondson principal Jacob Muniz and teachers Mayra Salguero and Conny Rodriguez will lead a discussion on “Response to Intervention in a 90/10 model in the Dual Language Classroom (K-3)”. They will guide participants through two Dual Language Immersion models currently being used at Edmondson, addressing their successes and outlining challenges, while encouraging feedback from educators in attendance.

WHEN: 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 23


WHERE: UCLA Moore Hall, Center X, 1320 Moore Hall, Los Angeles, 90095

DETAILS: Dual-language immersion programs provide students the opportunity to learn in an enhanced academic environment to achieve high levels of bilingualism and biliteracy in English and Spanish, while promoting cultural understanding. Edmondson students receive a Seal of Biliteracy for successfully completing the program in fifth-grade.

The “UCLA Open Door Series: Spanish Dual Immersion and the California Common Core” is sponsored by the California Reading and Literature Project (CRLP), whose goal is to design programs that identify, develop and provide effective instruction in English Language Arts.
