Biliteracy Instruction for Literacy Coaches and Instructional Coaches

January 16 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

Biliteracy for Literacy Coaches and Instructional Coaches is a workshop especially designed for instructional and literacy coaches supporting biliteracy instruction and programming in one-way and two-way immersion/dual language and transitional bilingual programs.  Using best practices and the latest research in the field of literacy and biliteracy, participants will:

  • explore how Spanish literacy differs from English literacy (discourse and word level) and the instructional implications of these differences
  • use a growth mindset to identify ways of supporting and coaching a wide range of biliteracy teachers with different levels of expertise and linguistic abilities
  • help teachers implement biliteracy by creating “look fors”  that include criteria for setting up and using the  learning environment (3 linguistic spaces: Spanish, the Bridge and English), schedules, staying in the target language and integrating language, literacy and content.



  • Instructional/Literacy Coaches:   Monolingual (English speaking) and Bilingual coaches
  • District Level Administrators
  • Building Administrators (Principals and Assistant Principals)
