Culture, Language & Race in QRIS
As part of their Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge grant, the state of Vermont has made a commitment to providing early childhood personnel with professional development that will prepare them to better support young dual language learners (DLLs) and their families. One example of this commitment is an online toolbox of free, high-quality, evidence-based resources called Resources to Support the Full Participation of Young Dual Language Learners (DLLs) and Their Families.
California’s Best Practices for Young Dual Language Learners: Research Overview Paper is a publication that provides early childhood educators with valuable information on the most current research on the development of young dual language learners. This series of research overviews spans the disciplines of neuroscience, cognitive science, developmental psychology, assessment, educational research, family engagement, and special needs.
