Timeless Teachings in a Changing World
Students at Carl Von Linné School are being prepared for College and Career through the use of a research-based curriculum that is aligned to the Common Core State Standards. Grade level teams collaborated to create curriculum maps that help guide instructions. The mapping process took us through indexing or diagraming our curriculum to identify and address academic gaps, redundancies, and misalignments for purposes of improving our overall coherence and by extension, its effectiveness.

In Dual Language Immersion classrooms a range of instructional practices are implemented that integrate both content-based and form-focused instructional options as complementary ways of intervening to develop a learner’s interlanguage system. A counterbalanced approach is outlined as an array of opportunities for learners to process language through content by means of comprehension, awareness, and production mechanisms, and to negotiate language through content by means of interactional strategies involving teacher scaffolding and feedback.
