Biliteracy, essential to dual language education, plays a role in advanced language acquisition, access to academic content, and developing awareness of cross-linguistic connections. We will focus on two case studies of biliteracy in DL programs. First, we examine how DL programs frame biliteracy as essential to program development through an examination of multiple program master plans. Second, we consider the range of biliteracy in a DL fifth-grade class, and its long-term impact on students.
