Literacy Squared Lesson Plan Template

This lesson plan template was developed by the Literacy Squared team. Teachers can use this template to plan and align the side-by-side Lectura en español and Literacy-based ELD components of the language arts block. Coaches and administrators can use the Literacy Squared Observation Protocol to observe, monitor, and evaluate biliteracy lessons in Spanish and English, and support the professional development of biliteracy teachers. The Literacy Squared Lesson Plan Template is explained and exemplified in Biliteracy from the Start: Literacy Squared in Action (Escamilla et al, 2013).

Literacy Squared Observation Protocol

The Literacy Squared team developed this observation protocol. Coaches, administrators, and teachers can use this protocol to observe, monitor, and evaluate teachers' implementation of the Literacy Squared lesson plans. The evidence of teacher implementation can then be used to support the professional development of biliteracy teachers. The Literacy Squared Observation Protocol is explained and exemplified in Biliteracy from the Start: Literacy Squared in Action (Escamilla et al, 2013).

Literacy Squared Writing Rubric

This writing rubric was developed by the Literacy Squared team. Teachers and coaches can use this rubric to assess students' writing in Spanish and English side-by-side. The rubric allows teachers and coaches to collect quantitative and qualitative evidence of student writing in two languages with attention to content, structural elements, spelling (side 1: quantitative) and bilingual strategies from Spanish to English and English to Spanish at the discourse, sentence/phrase, word, and phonics levels (side 2: qualitative). The side-by-side analysis of student writing in two languages using the Literacy Squared Writing Rubric is explained and exemplified in Biliteracy from the Start: Literacy Squared in Action (Escamilla et al, 2013).
