    Abstract

    This research explores the design and delivery of a current dual language immersion program in the Southeastern United States of America. It traces the historical, legal and political developments of language programs as well as describing the features and practices of this particular bilingual program in one school setting. The dual language immersion program provided instruction in the native language for Spanish speakers and English speakers. The four research questions that were asked: (1) What are the features of the dual language immersion program in this Southeastern United States district? (2) Who are the stakeholders and what are their perceptions of the program? (3) What constitutes an effective dual language program? (4) What is the historical, political and legal genesis of programs such as this?
