College readiness grant helps teachers deliver dual language immersion program

Associate Professor Diane Tedick (second languages and cultures education, Curriculum and Instruction) was awarded a "Ramp-Up to Readiness" grant, to be funded through the University's College Readiness Consortium. The grant project, titled "Sheltered Instruction and Language/Literacy Development Strategies for Middle School Teachers Serving Diverse Learners," will support professional development for Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) teachers, who will be teaching in the newly designed joint Dual Immersion and International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme housed at Anwatin Middle School. Tedick has been working with MPS since November to design the new program, which will serve native Spanish-speaking Latino learners and a highly diverse group of native English-speaking students.
