In this interactive workshop, Diane (Dee) Tedick and Cory Mathieu introduce their new dual language and immersion (DLI) specific Teacher Assessment Rubrics! The preservice, inservice, and self-assessment rubrics describe the pedagogical skills and knowledge that are unique to DLI contexts and necessary for promoting high levels of student academic achievement and language development. They are designed to support DLI teacher preparation and professional development. The rubrics are research-based, context-dependent, formative, developmental, and educative – ideally, teachers will learn new skills and practices by interacting with the rubrics. The workshop will include an introduction to the content of the rubrics and an associated workbook, an explanation of the development process, and substantial time for Q&A and discussion with colleagues about how the rubrics might be integrated into teacher education and K-12 DLI programs. Check out the rubrics at: dliteachingrubrics.umn.edu.
Diane (Dee) Tedick is a Professor of Second Language Education at the University of Minnesota. She is Principal Investigator on the USDE National Professional Development grant that supported the creation of these rubrics. She has worked in the DLI field as a teacher, teacher educator, and researcher for over 30 years.
Cory Mathieu is an Assistant Professor of Education at the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay. She received her Ph.D. in Second Language Education at the University of Minnesota where her research specialized in secondary dual language and immersion education.
Target Audience: This workshop is appropriate for K-12 DLI teachers of any language, principals or administrators of DLI programs, and DLI teacher educators.
