All teachers are trained to use AVID’s research-based strategies to develop academic skills and behaviors in ALL students. These strategies were developed and continue to be refined in collaboration with college professors.
Dr. Katheryn Lindholm-Leary, one of the country’s leading experts on dual immersion programs defines them as:
"[In dual immersion programs] English-dominant and target-language-dominant students are purposefully integrated with the goals of developing bilingual skills, academic excellence, and positive cross-cultural and personal competency attitudes for both groups of students." (Lindholm-Leary, 2001 pg. 30)
In dual immersion programs, students learn content through both their native language and the target language. Simultaneous translation is never used.
