School Wide Model

Our program model is grounded in sound theory and best practices associated with an enriched instructional model that provides an additive trilingual environment. All students have the opportunity to learn a second and third language while continuing to develop their native language proficiency. Cooperative learning strategies will foster positive interactions among students while they learn core academic curriculum. 

 

This approach to bi-literacy has proven to be unique and highly successful. Tohuí Language Academy has developed its own curriculum following bi-literacy and second language acquisition research with a combination of the TEKS Texas Essential Knowledge & Skills and readiness standards.
