2.3. Strategies

2.3.1. Communicate for social, intercultural and instructional purposes Students in late exit transitional will slowly switch the language in which they do this in student/student and student/teacher communication. Hold "english speaking hour" on a regular basis and more frequently to emphasize social practice.

2.3.2. Communicate in language arts Teach students a basis for their native language to build upon for English - it's easier to teach grammar for example when students have a basic understanding.

2.3.3. Communicate in mathematics In late-exit transitional, math is generally taught in the native language. Build vocabulary to bridge the language gap through flash cards and other visual tools.

2.3.4. Communicate in science Establish connections between scientific language in both languages early-on. As students learn more, the language can become very complex.

2.3.5. Communicate in social studies. Respect your students culture by learning about their history and geography in their native language. Compare histories in English to native language group.

2.4. Example

2.4.1. Primary Bilingual School Students learning content in native language are able to learn at a faster pace than with the additional English hurdle. Students exiting programs to mainstream English-speaking classrooms after third grade showed the most success.
