Teitelbaum, Herbert; And Others (1982). Changing Schools: The Language Minority Student in the Eighties. A monograph for school district personnel and education agencies presents a comprehensive plan to address the legal and administrative complexities of implementation of services for language minority students, particularly in bilingual education programs. The first section sketches federal involvement in bilingual education and related programs and outlines some of the responses from local education agencies. The second section discusses issues faced by providers of technical assistance in overcoming resistance to change. It looks at introducing bilingual education into a district, voluntary and mandated change, technical assistance centers, and the role of the technical assistance provider. Section three outlines and examines substantive options for school districts in program design, teacher training, and evaluation. Program design issues include district-wide bilingual education policy, program fragmentation, language arts instruction programs, entry and exit criteria, and content area instruction. Teacher and training issues include finding appropriate bilingual and English-as-a-second-language staff, bilingual materials, and inservice training program design. Evaluation issues include the potential advantages and problems evaluation poses, types of evaluation, creating effective evaluation, and data analysis and interpretation.   [More]  Descriptors: Bilingual Education, Change Strategies, Compliance (Legal), Educational History

Centre for Information on Language Teaching, London (England). (1976). Bilingualism and British Education: The Dimensions of Diversity. This compilation of articles deals with practical questions of bilingualism that appear to be important to the development of education in Britain. The conference for which the papers were originally prepared concentrated on three general aspects: the existence of many thousands of bilingual children in Britain whose native languages are largely ignored educationally; the examples of planned or structured bilingual education offered in Wales; and the relationship between the techniques of foreign language teaching and the notion and reality of bilingualism. The articles include: (1) "Bilingualism and British Education," by G.E. Perren; (2) "Distribution of Linguistic Minorities in Britain," by Kiran Campbell-Platt; (3) "Provision by Minorities for Language Maintenance," by Verity Khan; (4) "Bilingualism in the Schools of Wales," by Derrick Sharp; (5) "Bilingual Education in Wales," by Eric Evans; (6) "Bilingual Education in Wales: Secondary School Organisation," by Gerald R. Morgan; (7) "Bilingualism in Bradford," by Eunice B. Beaumont; (8) "Bilingualism in Birmingham," by R.D. Chapman; (9) "Foreign Language Teaching and Bilingualism," by C.J. Dodson; and (10) "Some Conclusions: Reports by Working Parties." Appended are a list of current research in Britain on bilingualism, multilingualism, and bilingual education; a selected bibliography; a list of conference participants; and a list of other publications by CILT.

Paulston, Christina Bratt (1977). Linguistic Aspects of Emigrant Children. The language problem of emigrant children has two major aspects: (1) concern for mother tongue maintenance; and (2) concern that the children are not learning the second language, which is the official language of the host country. The first is primarily the concern of the family, whereas the second is the concern of the entire community. Massive school failure on the part of emigrant children has brought about federal legislation mandating bilingual education programs. Research done with Finnish students in Swedish schools and French-speaking students in English-language schools in Canada show that the students who do better in their mother tongue also do better in the second language and in other academic courses. The evidence for the importance of mother tongue development seems overwhelmingly clear, and in the United States, as in Europe, the educational consequence is, or should be, bilingual education. The goal of bilingual education programs, stable bilingualism, makes them vital parts of any educational program. The assessment of the efficacy of bilingual education, however, varies widely, and there is a widespread difference of opinions on its aims and objectives. One of the best indicators with which to evaluate these programs is the drop-out rate, not a psychometric assessment of the students' language skills.   [More]  Descriptors: Bilingual Education, Bilingualism, Children, Educational Legislation

Lira, Juan R. (1979). An Investigation of Bilingual Teacher Training and its Effect on Bilingual Bicultural Instruction. To investigate bilingual teacher training and its effect on bilingual bicultural instruction, a review of the literature was undertaken and teacher training for a bilingual bicultural program in a Texas school district was analyzed through an interview with the program supervisor. The review focused on the academic achievement of language minority groups, success factors in bilingual education programs, bilingual teacher certification and competencies, correlations between teacher attitudes and bilingual education, bilingual education program rationales, inclusion of culture in instruction programs, and the University of Texas at Austin teacher preparation program, New York City Bilingual Teacher Intern Program, and six French bilingual projects in New England and Louisiana.  Findings on the Texas school district bilingual program (intended to develop capability in English and Spanish) revealed: a real attempt to give teachers necessary training; inconsistency between philosophy and practice, e.g., student evaluation through standardized tests in English; that the supervisor had too many responsibilities but lacked input into essential program components; personal attitudes (influenced by salary and class size) affected the performance of those involved. Recommendations relate to the understanding of bilingual education goals, community involvement, curriculum, program assessment, and program financial support.   [More]  Descriptors: Academic Achievement, Attitudes, Bilingual Education, Bilingual Teachers
