Dual Language

EBSOLA Dual Language offers a Dual Immersion Program that supports the Kenosha Unified School District’s goal of bi-literacy in grades K-5.  The Dual Language Program offers instruction in Spanish and English each and every day. Beginning in Kindergarten, instruction is presented primarily in Spanish, while English instruction remains included on a daily basis. As students progress through the grades each year, Spanish instruction is reduced while English instruction is increased. By the third grade, students receive fifty percent instruction in each target language. The goal of this program is for all students to become bilingual and bi-literate; to enhanced awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity; and high levels of academic achievement through instruction in two languages.  All of these opportunities will foster and increase world life opportunities post high school.

 

Programa de Inmersión en Dos Idiomas

El programa de inmersión en dos idiomas en la escuela elemental Edward Bain ofrece diariamente instrucción a los estudiantes en Español e Inglés. A partir de Kindergarten, la instrucción se presenta principalmente en español. Cuando los estudiantes progresan a través de los grados la instrucción en español se reduce mientras la instrucción en inglés se aumenta. Una vez los estudiantes pasen al tercer grado, los estudiantes estarán inmersos en 50/50 español y en ingles en todas las áreas de contenido. El objetivo del programa es para que todos los estudiantes aprendan dos idiomas, inglés y español de igual manera que desarrollen destrezas de lectoescritura en ambos idiomas. El programa también tiene como objetivo fomentar la oportunidad de desarrollar una consciencia lingüística y multicultural. Estas destrezas y habilidades aumentaran sus oportunidades educativas y profesionales al salir la secundaria.
