Invite Erikson to train your staff to apply the widely respected Biliteracy Unit Framework, a template for maximizing instruction and integrating curriculum.

Through this three-day workshop, you and your staff will:

  • Gain an understanding of the Biliteracy Unit Framework and strategies for the early childhood classroom
  • Understand what a big idea is, and apply this understanding to the development of curricula in your own context
  • Learn practical strategies for increasing student participation, receptive and expressive language, and background knowledge
  • Reflect on your professional practice and how to improve your instructional methods with dual language learners

The workshop instructors draw on their experience using the framework in multiple grade levels to support unit design, oracy, reading comprehension, writing, and word work.

Who should attend

  • Teachers and specialists in early childhood classrooms (preschool to third grade)
  • Administrators overseeing dual language and bilingual programs
