We are excited to be working with Georgetown University’s Assessment and Evaluation Language Resource Center AELRC on much needed research on partner language assessments in DC’s dual language programs.

“Assessment and evaluation are key elements in a comprehensive approach to education that is accountable to the needs of learners, the values of scholarly disciplines, and the well-being of society. Assessment and evaluation also provide essential mechanisms for understanding, improving, and demonstrating the worth of foreign language education. AELRC aims to provide leadership, scholarship, and outreach in the practices of FL assessment and program evaluation to foreign language teachers, program administrators, and researchers in diverse educational settings.”

Researcher Mina Niu will be conducting the research. She can be reached at mn645@georgetown.edu.

 

 

Dear Families, educators, and partners,

In 2020 we announced that the DC Language Immersion Project would close its doors due to lack of resources. However, before completely dissolving the organization, we recently asked a group of local and national educators if they - individually or collectively - would be interested in continuing the work of advocating for multilingual education in the District of Columbia. We are pleased to announce that a few individuals responded yes and volunteered to forge a plan to continue this vital work.

So, we are not closing our doors but we are entering a six-to-twelve-month period of dormancy as we determine the best path forward for the DC Immersion Project.  Thank you for your continued support and please stay tuned for updates.
