Many Chinese dual language/immersion programs nationwide report that developing students’ biliteracy, especially Chinese literacy, is challenging. What are the space and practices needed for developing young learners’ Chinese literacy? What does a longitudinal study show on Chinese literacy development and content-area learning in a K-5 immersion program? How can we expand the space and improve practices through professional development? Participants join presenters to discuss these issues, share experiences, and develop strategies to improve their programs.
