Elementary Dual Language Model

The Dual Language Model at Biltmore Prep is modeled after the Utah Dual Language Immersion Program model, which uses a fifty-fifty model for the K-5 program. Students spend half of their school day in the target language (Spanish) and the other half-day in English.

  • -Instruction is delivered in only one language at a time without translation.

  • -BPA primarily uses a “Two Teacher Model” in which Teacher A delivers instruction in English and Teacher B in Spanish. Both teachers share two classes and students switch classes in the middle of the day. (Based on enrollment, a one-teacher model may be implemented, in which the same teacher delivers half-day instruction in English and the other half of the day in Spanish).

  • -A rolling schedule is implemented for increased continuity. If students end their day in Spanish, they will begin the next day in Spanish and then transition to their English instruction mid-day.
  •  
  • -Literacy and academic content are taught daily in English and Spanish.
