|dc.description.abstract||Bilingual education can be presented to learners in a variety of ways. This project focuses on Transitional Bilingual Education (TBE) and Two-Way Immersion (TWI). This is because an urban school in the Buffalo district is in process of converting the current TBE program into a TWI program. When considering this switch of educational philosophies, a deeper look at the philosophical and educational implications is necessary to ensure that the conversion is smooth and research-based. In the process of considering each of these bilingual education programs and philosophies, the history of the Bilingual Center, #33, was taken into consideration. Then, discrepancy analyzes were performed to consider general and specific changes that will affect the educational environment.||en_US|
