Scoop It! Print E-mail


Dual language education and the instruction of emerging bilingual students are matters receiving unprecedented attention from the press and media both in the United States and internationally.  To help you keep up with all the publicity, DLeNM has created five “Scoop It” topics which contain links to news stories and broadcast covering:

·         Benefits of Bilingualism
·         Dual Language Education Challenges and Opportunities
·         Dual Language Education in the United States
·         Language Education Outside the U.S.
·         Language Education: Major Papers and Reports
 

While these categories of information are necessarily arbitrary and subjective, the information provided through “Scoop It” helps DLeNM members follow what the public is reading and hearing about their work and their students.  

DLeNM Scoop It! is curated by James Lyons, Esq.—policy attorney, analyst, advocate, and activist.
