Abstract

This project provides a workshop framework for the implementation of effective bilingual practices in early childhood reading and language arts. It is designed as a series of workshops for English-Spanish bilingual educators, with the purpose of providing ideas and strategies to support the development of reading and language arts programs in both languages. It is important to point out that the success of a language program relies not only on excellent research, but also on the support of parents, teachers, administrators and the whole community. It is important to believe that no language is superior to any other, that the language and literacy acquisition of more than one language "provides for a more resilient cornerstone for cognition and a more diversified body of mental abilities" (Izquierdo, 2000, p. 6).
