In this session, participants will learn strategies used to generate language use among dual language learners (DLLs) in early childhood classrooms. These strategies are representative of techniques found in Cultivating Oral Language and Literacy Talent in Students (COLLTS), an approach created by Dr. Diane August and a team of AIR experts with decades of experience in developing research-based effective literacy interventions for DLL & EL students. COLLTS uses engaging vocabulary routines, shared interactive reading of high-quality children’s books, and language-based, center-time activities to support DLLs’ language acquisition in early childhood classrooms.
