Effective Strategies for Young Dual Language Learners: A Training for ECE Coaches

In this three-day training, Early Childhood Education (ECE) coaches will learn five research-based strategies to effectively promote language acquisition for young Dual Language Learners (DLL). Coaches will learn how to incorporate the strategies into their own practice using the innovative “telepresence approach” in which a teacher or provider wears a headset and the coach communicates via microphone in real time to provide feedback. This training is designed for all ECE coaches who work with providers in both home and center-based settings.

In addition to learning about the most current research and data around educating young DLLs, coaches will engage in dynamic, hands-on experiences to help them better understand both the strategies and how to utilize the headsets.

This training is drawn from the TALLK Project (Teachers Acquiring Language Learner Knowledge), a decade-long partnership between First 5 Sonoma County and the Sonoma County Office of Education. TALLK provides preschool teachers and site directors with training and coaching around supporting language development among preschoolers in their home language and in English.

Both the training and The TALLK Project are drawn from Preschool English Learners: Principles and Practices to Promote Language, Literacy, and Learning from the California Department of Education, One Child, Two Languages: A Guide for Preschool Educators of Children Learning English as a Second Language by Patton O. Tabors, as well current research from National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
