This presentation will focus on the exciting development of biliteracy in the early grades and how written language in both L1 and L2 is developed through Interactive Dialogue Journals and Mini Shared Reading. We will share the impact of powerful research and practice. The goals include 1) To present how to organize the teaching and learning of writing and reading in the social context of Interactive Dialogue Journals thru a Vygotskian sociocultural lens; 2) To show how children in a small group of 3-5, who do not know all their letters or sounds or sights words, can read a leveled book two levels above their instructional level using Mini Shared Reading Strategy; and 3) To share the evolution of the children’s conceptual interpretations of written language from a Piagetian perspective, sociopsychogenesis. Digital and hard copies of handouts will be available. Come and be engaged in powerful approaches to developing biliteracy in the classroom!
