A nonprofit organization for educators, families, and policy makers
(formerly known as Massachusetts Association for Bilingual Education)
El Enriquecer is a retreat for existing programs to self-evaluate, identify areas of improvement, and develop action plans to strengthen and improve program implementation. The retreat consists of two days of intensive training and planning for school teams based on using the Guiding Principles for Dual Language Education.
The goal is for school teams to leave El Enriquecer with a clear idea of where their program is with respect to best practices and the next steps they need to take to improve program quality. Participants will have the opportunity to study myriad concrete examples and tools for immediate use back at the school site.
A Dual Language Program Self-Evaluation Retreat includes:
2-Day Self-Evaluation Retreat
Lead MABE Facilitators Include: Yael Zakon-Bourke, Deborah Sercombe & Amy Finsmith
