Two-Way Bilingual Immersion TWBI

Trace is happy to announce that we now offer a Two-Way Bilingual Immersion (TWBI)  program, which began in 2010 with 2 TWBI Kindergarten classrooms. The program now continues to fifth grade.

What is Two-Way Bilingual Immersion (TWBI)?

  • An instructional program that develops bilingualism and biliteracy in two languages by integrating native English speakers and native speakers of another language (Spanish)
  • Instruction in two languages, one language at a time
  • A specific model for instruction in target languages
