This case study tells the story of Red Bank, New Jersey's coherent P-3 approach to educating Dual Language Learners (DLLs) and preparing them for expanded life opportunities. This comprehensive P-3 approach is built upon the following:

  • Expanding learning opportunities for young DLL students,
  • Integrating P-3 curricula and instructional practices that develop mastery and self-regulation,
  • Building intentional community partnerships that support a common goal of educating the whole child, and
  • Implementing multiple-source assessment practices that drive curricula and instructional alignment and teacher quality.
