Dual Language Opportunities for WISD Students
T.R.I.B.E. (Teaching, Realizing, Inspiring, Believing, Engaging) Parent Academy will host a Dual Language Parent Information Session at Howard Junior High Cafeteria, 265 Broadhead Road, Waxahachie on Monday, December 1, 2014 at 6:30 p.m.
Dr. Richard Gómez will be giving an overview and answering questions about the Two-Way Dual Language Enrichment Model. Dr. Richard Gómez and Dr. Leo Gómez, are retired professors of Bilingual and Dual Language Education. Over the last 19 years, they have been extensively involved in the development, implementation and assessment of the Gómez & Gómez Dual Language Enrichment Model, which they developed in 1995 and implemented in 1996.
WISD has had the Gómez & Gómez Dual Language Enrichment Model for the past two years to service our bilingual education students. The Dual Language Enrichment two-way model offers bilingual and monolingual students the opportunity to be bilingual, biliterate and bicultural. In 2015-2016, WISD is hoping to offer Two-Way Dual Language so that Kindergarten and First Grade monolingual students, will have the opportunity to apply for open spots in the Dual Language classrooms.
