Welcome to our free resources to support elementary and middle school immersion teachers in growing as instructors.
  • Immersion is the most effective model for producing students with high levels of language proficiency and cultural understanding.  However, immersion is also a very challenging model that requires masterful teaching of content and language objectives. 
  • Teachers must be familiar with state and language standards, instructional strategies for content and language, and formative and summative content and language assessments.
  • The following videos and resources are provided as a way of supporting quality immersion instruction in the early elementary and middle school grades. 
  • While these materials are free to the public, we ask that, if used in training or group settings, that credit be given to the Global Village Charter Collaborative.
