Cross-Linguistic Transfer: Building a Bridge Across Languages

  • Dates: 09 – 09 Mar, 2020
  • Location: Visalia
  • Address: TCOE Conference Center, 6200 S Mooney Blvd

Dual Language and Bilingual Classroom Teachers, here's an opportunity you don't want to miss! Tulare County Office of Education is thrilled to host a dual-language expert, Silvia Dorta-Duque de Reyes.

This workshop, geared for TK-3, will offer an early literacy focus with an emphasis on cross-linguistic transfer, providing guidance for dual language educators to support learners in bridging between Spanish and English.  Participants will grow their understanding of how and why explicit cross-linguistic transfer instruction is an innovative and effective approach to biliteracy. They will learn how to organize instruction for transfer by making the Spanish-English sound-spelling connection explicit. Together we will practice interactive strategies that promote cross-linguistic transfer and metalinguistic skills, while also examining assessment protocols for monitoring progress towards biliteracy.
