Pulu, Tupou L.; Pope, Mary L. (1981). Atautchimukta: Let Us All Come Together. A Report of the Annual Bilingual-Multicultural Education Conference (7th, Anchorage, Alaska, February 17-19, 1981). Sponsored by the Alaska Department of Education and supported by 25 additional organizations and school districts, the Seventh Annual Bilingual-Multicultural Education Conference (1981) was a major activity of the Department, designed to provide training assistance to all persons involved in bilingual-bicultural education programs. The conference theme, "Let Us All Come Together," was used to emphasize the important roles of parents, elders, school personnel, and students in developing and implementing strong bilingual-bicultural education programs in Alaska. Over 50 workshops were offered to help the above groups to participate more fully in bilingual education programs at the community and school district levels. In addition to the workshops and addresses, there were 17 presentations of the arts of most of Alaska's major ethnic groups. Those presentations included dances, songs, shows of ethnic costumes, and displays of various art forms. The report is illustrated with numerous photographs of participants and activities.   [More]  Descriptors: Alaska Natives, American Indian Culture, American Indian Education, American Indians

Molina, John C. (1977). Statement by Dr. John C. Molina Before the Subcommittee on Elementary, Secondary, and Vocational Education, Committee on Education and Labor, U.S. House of Representatives. The eight year old Bilingual Education Act, funded by Title VII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, is discussed in this report. Federal funds have been allocated to more than 500 local education agencies seeking to improve educational opportunities for students in 68 language groups, and to expand educational access for more than 300,000 children of non or limited English speaking ability. In postsecondary education programs, 100 institutions of higher education will offer teacher training and retraining programs to an estimated 25,000 classroom teachers and teacher aides. At the graduate level, the fellowship program will offer degree programs in 42 institutions of higher education reaching more than 500 degree candidates. To develop a more effective coordinating relationship between the Federal Government and State education agencies, 43 State agencies will receive assistance contract money to carry out bilingual education coordinating services within the State. As a means of insuring a growing and adequate supply of relevant and quality instructional materials, 15 Materials Development Centers and 3 Assessment/Dissemination Centers have been funded to support and meet the needs of rapidly increasing bilingual education programs. A National Clearinghouse on Bilingual Education is scheduled for installation and operation during fiscal year 1978. Four model demonstration bilingual programs will be placed in 16 local education sites for testing in 1978. This will provide an opportunity for the effectiveness of these model demonstration projects to be determined.
