Dual Immersion programmes (or two-way bilingual programes are a hot topic in bilingual education. In a dual immersion programme, half the students speak English and half the students are non-English speakers. Research indicates that this is a very effective programme for increasing the achievement levels of all students. Many organizations that oppose bilingual education are in favor of dual-immersion programmes. In this book, the authors illustrate how to provide school administrators, teachers and parents with basic knowledge needed for planning and implementing an effective two-way bilingual programme.
