Somali Dual Language Immersion — Pilot Program
The Somali Dual Language Immersion program is called a pilot because it is a first year offering in the district and, indeed, is the first Somali Dual Language program in the state of Minnesota. As a result, for this first year, the program is available at Discovery and Talahi Community Schools only and limited to kindergarten students from the Discovery, Talahi, Lincoln and Oak Hill attendance areas.
The Somali Dual Language Immersion program is a 50/50 delivery model where half the day is taught in Somali and half the day is taught in English. Language Arts will be taught in Somali, as well as one additional core content area. Language Arts, the remaining core content areas, and specialist courses such as art, music and physical education, will be taught in English.
