Two-Way Dual Language

Our TWDL Symposium - Summer 2014

Statement of Philosophy

Tucson Unified School District recognizes the inherent linguistic and cultural diversity of its students. Within this context, dual language is incorporated as a sound programmatic response to an equal educational opportunity.

Symposium graphic

Dual language incorporates each student's linguistic and cultural attributes into a total learning experience producing individuals who will be full participants in our pluralistic society while continuing to preserve, manifest and enjoy their own cultural uniqueness.

Dual language is based on linguistic, sociological, psychological and pedagogical theories that emphasize learning through the use of the student's first and second languages as mediums of instruction that will result in strong bilingual and biliteracy development.
