Organizing Instruction for Cross-Linguistic Transfer

Rather than assuming that cross-linguistic transfer will occur without explicit teaching, we can organize language instruction intentionally and strategically to promote proficient biliteracy. Organizing instruction for biliteracy requires that we effectively teach universal language constructs and provide systematic, standards-based instruction of both transferable and non-transferable skills. This interactive workshop will engage participants as they analyze language in texts, learn to plan for skill transfer, promote metalinguistic skills.
