X4 - Literacy Squared

Literacy Squared is the ongoing and extensive professional development (PD) required to enact the Comprehensive Biliteracy Model. This component is subdivided into two parts: (1) PD for leadership (principals, literacy coaches, and school site coordinators); and (2) PD for teachers delivering the Literacy Squared instructional model. The Literacy Squared instructional model contains several significant differences from more traditional bilingual/dual language programs. Differences include: paired literacy instruction beginning in kindergarten; literacy-based ESL; and an expanded view of literacy instruction in two languages with greater emphasis on oracy, writing, metalinguistic awareness, and cross-language connections. All of these components make the role of PD critical to the successful implementation of the instructional model.
