Overview of Biliteracy Instructional Programs

Biliteracy programs support the maintenance and/or development of language for English language learners. Other biliteracy programs (two-way bilingual immersion (TWBI) and dual language) integrate language minority students (English learners) and language majority students (English speakers) to develop bilingualism and biliteracy in English and another language.
