Utah immersion program looks to university
Ah, to be in Utah, where they seem to have a sense of how this whole immersion thing is going to work out K – 16. There’s something so calming about having these issues worked on at the state level, so every freaking school district doesn’t have to work it out on their own, and make their own mistakes and missteps along the way. (can you sense my frustration as San Francisco goes through its growing-pains period….?)
As Utah’s first dual-immersion students are prepping for college, so is their language program
That’s because Argyle — a native English speaker — has spent a portion of every school day speaking Spanish since she was in first grade.
Argyle and her classmates, plus a similar group of sophomores at Viewmont High, were the first students enrolled in a pilot program, now in 138 schools statewide, where elementary students spend half their days learning math, science and other subjects in an immersion, or non-native, language.
