Valencia, Atilano A.; And Others (1979). Bilingual Education: A Vehicle for Bilingualism and Biculturalism. Two Presentations in the College of Education, Dialogue Series. Two papers on bilingual education are included. "The Emerging Features of Bilingualism and Bilingual Education in the U.S.A." by Atilano A. Valencia represents an overview of the development of programs and policies to meet the needs of bilingual students in the United States. The federal legislation and key court decisions of the 1960s that were responsible for mandating bilingual instruction are reviewed. Reasons for incomplete success in implementing these mandates are discussed. These reasons include slow development of bilingual teacher training and material development centers, which are only now beginning to meet demand; and continued public reluctance to discard old attitudes which view bilingual education as at best frivolous and at worst a social threat. In"Bilingual/Bicultural Teacher Education: An Approach," Robert L. Gallegos and Roy C. Rodriguez discuss bilingual/bicultural teacher training in New Mexico, which is offered as a model for other programs. Elements of the model include: (1) public school cooperation in providing student teaching opportunities; (2) assessment of student teacher needs; (3) weekly lesson plans consisting of units designed to meet specific (often interdisciplinary) learning objectives; and (4) evaluative conferences between instructors and student teachers, following completion of the program.

(). Bilingual Education. This document reports on the Bilingual Education Program established under Title VII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended in 1967. The Bilingual Education Act is specifically designed for those children who come from environments where the dominant language is not English. A significant requirement of the Bilingual Office of the Office of Education is the inclusion of a section for accountability for results in every bilingual project. It was decided to select discretionary programs such as Title VII and implement and develop evaluative procedure. Major requirements for accountability include the following: (1) Objectives must be stated in terms of desired student performance; (2) A school system must recognize its own capabilities and deficiencies and must seek to utilize appropriate technical assistance in an effort to develop and operate an effective program; and (3) All projects must provide for an independent educational accomplishment audit of the project. Program evaluation is done on a project by project basis. Individual project data emerging from first and second year projects show that concrete results are already being achieved. Of great significance is the fact that programs have reduced the number of student absences. Descriptors: Academic Achievement, Accountability, Attendance, Bilingual Education

Lesley, Tay (1971). Bilingual Education in California. This study investigates the development of bilingual education in California along with the impact of federal legislation and seeks to evolve a descriptive definition of term "bilingual education" in terms of programs for Mexican Americans in the state. Bilingual programs in the United States and typologies for bilingual programs are discussed for background information. The author considers 23 of the 26 bilingual programs in California on the basis of objectives, participants, curriculum, methods and materials, teachers and teacher training, and community involvement. In light of his findings, the author presents a classification of current programs and discusses implications for further investigations. A list of references is included along with the questionnaire used in the survey of current programs and the questions used in interviews with program directors. A list of state programs, their directors, and locations is provided.   [More]  Descriptors: Bilingual Education, Bilingualism, Community Involvement, Curriculum

Milk, Robert D.; Mendiola-Burgess, Sandra (1986). Computers in Bilingual Education: New Directions in Bilingual Teacher Training. This paper discusses issues related to the introduction of computer uses for bilingual education into bilingual teacher education programs, including equity with mainstream education programs, the functions for which computers are used in the schools, differential student access to resources in the home, and preservice teacher computer anxiety. A successful Title VII program that developed and incorporated computer applications as a major program component within the bilingual teacher training sequence is described. Evaluation data are discussed in the context of the question of how to provide adequate coverage of the full range of competencies needed by bilingual teachers within the time constraints of conventional teacher education programs.   [More]  Descriptors: Bilingual Education, Computer Literacy, Computer Uses in Education, Educational Needs

Cardenas, Jose A. (1975). Bilingual Education vs. Segregation. The self-described helplessness of some school districts in coping with linguistically heterogeneous groups of children (especially Spanish-speaking children) is more an admission of general educational inadequacy than a failure of bilingual education. With minimal effort and cost, a school district can offer unique learning situations that suit the needs of all students without shortchanging those whose native language is not English. The ultimate goal of a bilingual education program is individualized instruction. This goal can be achieved by flexible grouping of students, student exchange among classrooms, and differentiated staffing, which utilizes teacher aides and paraprofessionals, as well as parents and other school children. These techniques have been used successfully in the Edgewood Independent School District, one of the poorest in Texas.   [More]  Descriptors: Bilingual Education, Bilingual Schools, Bilingual Students, Bilingual Teacher Aides

Yourofsky, Kathleen G. (1984). Bilingual-Special Education Needs Assessment. In order to determine the present need for bilingual-special education in Oakland County, Michigan, a questionnaire was distributed to the directors of special education in the county's 29 school districts. The 28 responses to the instrument revealed that severe discrepancies exist among districts as to the level of service provided to the limited English proficient (LEP)-handicapped population of Oakland County. Only one district provided bilingual-special education services through a teacher certified in both bilingual education and special education. The remainder of the districts provided bilingual-special education services to LEP-handicapped children through "pull-out" programs with varying degrees of coordination between bilingual and special education staff. The number of LEP students receiving special education services represented only 2% of the total LEP population. This figure, as compared to the national incidence level of 7-10% of the school age population, showed a significant under-representation of LEP-handicapped students receiving special education services in the county. It was concluded that bilingual-special education needs to become an organized entity in order for school districts to have a philosophical base from which to organize specific program development. Suggestions for state level organization are made in order for Michigan to be prepared to better serve the increasing population of LEP students.
