Chan Lü, assistant professor of Chinese language and linguistics, was invited to deliver a lecture at the Seminars in Hearing and Communications Sciences (SHACS). The lecture is entitled "Language and literacy learning through dual language immersion". In the lecture, Dr. Lü first described the overall development of dual language immersion programs in the United States, and then discussed the studies she conducted on school age children in an English-Mandarin dual language immersion program in an urban public school. Based on the findings, she discussed the implications for language and literacy learning in a dual language immersion setting, and assessment of dual language learners. The lecture was attended by faculty, graduate and undergraduate students across the UW campus as well as by local dual language school teachers, administrators, parents and other members of the community.
