Biliteracy Curriculum Mapping and Biliteracy Unit Development

Biliteracy Curriculum Mapping and Biliteracy Unit Development

Through a backward design approach, Adelante Educational Specialists Group works closely with district teams to develop curriculum maps that enhance biliteracy instruction and pair the language environments. These curriculum maps are aligned to all state standards and are content and literacy integrated. The literacy is paired in order to expose students to a variety of both informational and literature texts. The language environments are also paired to create connections between the two languages, allowing for multiple opportunities for cross linguistic connections. Using the curriculum maps, teams then develop biliteracy units that outline what should be taught, including performance tasks and assessments while designating the language of instruction. Through this comprehensive process we work closely with teams of teachers to develop a strong biliteracy curriculum that gives teachers voice and choice, while still retaining the fundamental aspects of the three pillars of dual language education.
