gold standard dual language immersion education: putting it into practice

On October 21, add.a.lingua co-founder, Lilah Ambrosi, took webinar participants inside add.a.lingua partner school classrooms for a look at  some of the quality indicators that make up a gold standard dual language immersion program. In addition to our first podcast, and a post exploring the quadrants of quality via video, the webinar is another way we’re joining the discussion about global education and diversity in the classroom as part of Connected Educators Month.Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 9.51.57 AM
