Continuing its work as a strong advocate for multilingualism, TESOL International Association will participate in the Multiliteracy and Dual Language Learning Symposium on 23 September 2016 in Washington, DC. Hosted and sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education and the Office of English Language Acquisition, the symposium will explore the benefits of multiliteracy with experts in research, policy, practice, and business. The event will also bring together state and local education leaders, and feature a panel of teachers, parents, and students who will share their perspectives on approaches to dual language learning. 

Additionally, U.S. Secretary of Education John King will recognize governors and education chiefs from states that have adopted the Seal of Biliteracy.

The symposium will be held from 8:30 am – 3:00 pm EST and will be live streamed on the Department of Education’s website
