ENGLISH PARTNER TEACHERS

Both dual language immersion (DLI) models, 90:10 and 50:50, require an English-speaking partner teacher (at the same grade level) for every teacher in the DLI program.

  • This partner teacher provides monolingual instruction, and is the only teacher who speaks to/teaches the students (both English Learner and English-only) in English.
  • In the primary grades, it is recommended that the partner teacher be bilingual so that he/she can better understand the students when they use the target language during English instruction time.
  • The DLI teacher also provides monolingual instruction, and is the only teacher who speaks to/teaches the students (both English Learner and English-only) in the target language.
  • Both teachers adhere to the DLI program model and do not mix languages in instruction or in their interaction with the students.
