Curriculum, Advocacy, and Policy
The Biliteracy framework capitalizes on the linguistic resources that English language learners bring to their classroom (Escamilla et al., 2014). Research indicates that success for English language learners hinges on comprehensible content instruction and literacy instruction in their native language and English. The implementation of the Biliteracy framework in a school district with a high population of English language learners indicates that professional development for teachers and administrators should be presented when the Biliteracy framework is introduced. Program budgets must be detailed and carefully considered in order to assure successful framework development. Program monitoring measures must be carefully considered and presented so that all stakeholders understand their role in the successful implementation of the framework.
