Learning more than one language has been proven to have significant cognitive benefits for children. But all too often teachers don’t support dual language learners, because of old biases or other reasons that stand in their way. Brownieland is working with the Atlanta Speech School’s Rollins Center for Language and Literacy to support teachers of dual language learners by creating an online course for their Cox Campus. The first piece, titled The Gift, will introduce the course and its significance to our children. Brownieland’s partnership with the Atlanta Speech School has enabled us to showcase the science behind the amazing work going on to support all of our children. Stay tuned for The Gift!
The Atlanta Speech School’s Rollins Center for Language & Literacy provides research-based professional development for teachers of children birth through third grade. Rollins’ instructors work with educators, healthcare agencies, families and child-facing professionals to further literacy through coaching, professional learning and online learning. Through this work, Rollins is building ecosystems that are conducive to literacy – where connection is valued over compliance, children feel safe and supported, deep reading is enabled – and the possibilities for every child’s future are opened through literacy.
