Dual Language Symposium’s networking event and panel at Goethe Institut New York

I was thrilled to take part in the panel discussion “The Future of Bilingual Education: Best Practice Models from the U.S. and Abroad”” organized by the Goethe-Institut New York. The symposium gathered teachers, school aministrators and parents. It was also the chance to support NYC’s first German dual language program opening next year at P.S. 17 in Brooklyn.

The panel was moderated by GCRI Director Dr. Joann Halpern, and featured Christine Helot, Professor, Teacher Education Department, University of Strasbourg, France; Johanna Watzinger-Tharp, Associate Professor, Department of Linguistics, University of Utah; and Norman Sieweke, Second Languages Consultant, the Institute for Innovation in Second Language Education at Edmonton Public Schools, Canada
