Lately I've been doing a lot of research on bilteracy. What I have found has been very interesting. Students need to have a strong foundation in their native language in order to begin to read in their second language. Here in my district, we are devising a plan to meet this need in order for our students to be bilingual and biliterate. I found this blog for parents who want and have children who are becoming bilingual and biliterate, and I think it might be of interest for some of you!
