The National Dual Language Education Teacher Preparation Standards

by Michael D. Guerrero and Joan R. Lachance

The NDLETPS are intended to provide guidance for the preparation of dual language education teachers and other related school personnel, while allowing for the flexibility to address myriad local contextual realities and language groups, inclusive of and also beyond Spanish-English programs.

The NDLETPS draws from a variety of sources in presenting six Standards: Bilingualism and Bilteracy; Sociocultural Competence; Dual Language Instructional Practices and Pedagogy; Authentic Assessment in Dual Language; Professionalism, Advocacy, and Agency; and Program Design and Curricular Leadership.

DLI Logic Model 

Together with colleagues at Abt Associates and Dr. Elizabeth Howard (UCONN), DLeNM would like to invite you to provide feedback on the recently developed Dual Language Logic Model (this is what we called it originally on our website. Has it changed?), which originated from a study we are conducting with support from Arnold Ventures. The study team used the Guiding Principles for Dual Language Education (3rd edition) as a framework for the development process. You can learn more about the logic model through this short video presentation.
