Project DIAL takes an innovative approach to prepare secondary content teachers to meet the needs of lower proficiency MLLs through optimization of instructional language.

The project deploys the Designing Instruction for Academic LiteraciesTM (DIAL) training framework through a delivery model that includes intensive training followed by coaching and a booster. Secondary content teachers analyze the language of their classes in order to design their instructional talk. Training goals focus on meeting the needs of diverse MLLs at lower levels on language proficiency by increasing their access to content area instruction.
