How TK can help students learning English as a second language
Our Director of Dual Language Learner (DLL) Programs Carolyne Crolotte spoke with Zaidee Stavely from EdSource to discuss how Transitional Kindergarten (TK) can help DLLs.
This article discusses six strategies advocates recommend for schools to best serve 4-year-olds who are developing language skills in English and their home language.
“We definitely need more bilingual TKs. Many bilingual programs start in kindergarten or later,” Crolotte said. “We’re really missing a key window of opportunity in terms of language development and potential to become bilingual.”
