Proposal ID: 102074

Effective Term: Summer 2018
This course could be taken as an elective or as part of a non-degree licensure-only program that allows K-12 teachers to add a dual language specialization to their Oregon teaching license. In recent years, both Oregon as a whole and OSU have undertaken a variety of initiatives to improve outcomes for underrepresented students. At the K-12 level, a key focus has been improving outcomes for English learners (ELs) by expanding dual language programs. In dual language programs, students not yet fluent in English learn alongside English-proficient peers, becoming bilingual and biliterate while also learning grade-level content. Research suggests that dual language programs are the most effective known strategy for reducing the opportunity and achievement gaps that ELs face. A key constraint limiting the expansion of dual language programs, both in Oregon and across the country, is a shortage of qualified dual language teachers.

The Dual Language Specialization program would be a series of seven courses, addressing core domains established by Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission standards. Importantly, five of these seven courses consist of existing English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) endorsement courses. We are proposing two new courses just for dual language specialization candidates, to be taught bilingually in Spanish and English.

We plan to begin this program at the graduate level via Ecampus courses. In the long-term, we hope to also develop on-campus sections of the new dual language specialization courses for pre-service teachers.

This Dual Language Specialization Program is designed to help pre-service and licensed teachers develop the knowledge, skills and abilities in dual language instruction in order for them to effectively help K-12 students, who are learning in bilingual or dual language classrooms, improve their bilingual, biliterate and multicultural competencies.

The dual language specialization requires fluency in a language other than English. Because of our faculty expertise and the languages most common to dual language programs in Oregon, we will at least initially limit our dual language candidates to those fluent in English and Spanish.
We will add courses in Corvallis and Bend at a later date - when the courses are more established and our enrollment in pre-service teacher licensure programs includes more Spanish-English bilingual candidates.
