Briggs, Lucy T. (1982). Understanding the Role of Language in Bilingual Education. Bilingual education teachers need a clear understanding of the nature of language and language variation, and of how language relates to culture in order to be effective. With the needs of these teachers in mind, and drawing from anthropological linguistics and sociolinguistics, this chapter clarifies concepts of language and culture that have special relevance for bilingual or multilingual education. It discusses some important attributes of language, namely, the rules of spoken and written language, and the variables of language. The latter include linguistic borrowing and loan words, new usages, pidgins, creoles, and dialects. These and the other two attributes of language, culture and perception, are summed up in a definition of language as a complex, learned, symbolic system of human communication, filtering perception and reflecting the culture of which it is a function. It is primarily spoken, linking sound and meaning by conventional rules. It is also creative, variable and always changing. Implications of these notions for bilingual education are taken up with regard to the planning of bilingual programs, teacher training, determination of goals, and development of resources and methods. Three appendices provide various types of exercises, a list of false Spanish/English cognates and a glossary of multicultural terms.

de Cossio, Roger Diaz (1998). Adult Education, Migration and Immigrant Education. Mexico is experiencing major reform in adult education. At the same time, Mexico has been the largest producer of immigrants into the United States in the last 50 years. At the beginning of the century, non-English-speaking immigrants were only required to learn enough English to perform their jobs. As the Mexican-American community grew, it demanded equal educational opportunities for its children. Today school-age children within the immigrant communities have good opportunities to attend bilingual education programs, but their parents do not have the same opportunities. Adults now arrive with more education than previously, and have less difficulty adjusting to the new environment. Due to the peculiar pattern of Mexican migration, Mexico and the United States should work together in adult, child, and bilingual education as a whole and in relation to the needs of immigrants and their families. Areas of current collaboration include teacher education, adult education in Spanish, development of printed materials in Spanish, and Internet resources. There is much room for growth in these efforts. Contains 3 references. (MSE)   [More]  Descriptors: Adult Basic Education, Adult Education, Bilingual Education, Change Strategies

Buto, Kathleen A.; And Others (1975). A Better Chance to Learn: Bilingual-Bicultural Education. Clearinghouse Publication No. 51. School districts are compelled by the 1964 Civil Rights Act Title VI to provide special language programs for those children speaking a non-English native language and belonging to an identifiable minority group, generally of low socioeconomic status, including Mexican Americans, Native Americans, Puerto Ricans, and Asian Americans. The form such assistance should take is the subject of debate among educators, concerned language minority parents, and others. The most widely discussed approach is bilingual bicultural education. In this report, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights examines the extent to which this approach is an effective educational approach for increasing these students' opportunities. Due to the commission's civil rights jurisdiction, the report concentrates primarily on bilingual bicultural education as a means for overcoming a denial of equal educational opportunity. For comparative purposes, the English as a Second Language (ESL) approach which for many years has been the only special program used to teach these students English is examined. Educational principles underlying bilingual bicultural education are discussed. To clarify what bilingual bicultural programs are and how they work, selected programs are described. Information is provided on evaluation procedures for such programs. Federal and State policy on bilingual education is also discussed.   [More]  Descriptors: American Indians, Biculturalism, Bilingual Education, Civil Rights

Epstein, Noel (1977). Language, Ethnicity, and the Schools: Policy Alternatives for Bilingual-Bicultural Education. This book presents a discussion paper of policy alternatives for bilingual-bicultural education. It also includes two critiques of the paper. Since the enactment of the Bilingual Education Act, the U.S. Office of Education has sponsored programs to help low achieving students with little or no command of English by teaching reading, math, and other subjects in the native language. Although not a failure, this approach does not demonstrate that it makes a difference in terms of student achievement, or acquisition of English. Despite mixed results the Congress is committed to affirmative ethnicity, the maintenance of the mother tongue and culture. Bilingual-bicultural advocates want to provide bilingual education and bicultural instruction, i.e., language and cultural maintenance programs to students who are proficient in English. The philosophy of affirmative ethnicity has stirred debate within the government. The basic task before policymakers is to clarify the policy's direction. One suggestion is to tighten definitions of eligible children to insure that resources reach those who are most in need. It is also suggested that maintenance programs be defined as a way of sustaining and building valuable national language resources, opening other worlds to all.

Harvard Univ., Cambridge, MA. Center for Law and Education. (1975). Bilingual-Bicultural Education: A Handbook for Attorneys and Community Workers. The 1967 Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title VII generated national attention to the demands of Chicano, Puerto Rican, Chinese, Native American, and other groups for bilingual-bicultural education. The May 1970 Memorandum clarified the availability of the 1964 Civil Rights Act Title VI to advocates seeking such programs. In Lau v. Nichols, the Supreme Court left open the question of what kind of programs would meet Title VI standards. Thus legal advocates for bilingual-bicultural education have to be knowledgeable in the elements of bilingual-bicultural education philosophy, program and planning. Intended for use by legal service lawyers and other community advocates requiring quick access to the basic law of bilingual-bicultural education, these materials suggest various ways to obtain such programs. Topics covered are: the nature and effects of language exclusion, complaints and other litigation materials, relief, desegregation and bilingual-bicultural education, Federal and State laws, and types of programs. The 11 court decisions covered are: Lau v. Nichols, Serna v. Portales, U.S. v. Texas, Bradley v. Milliken, Martinez v. Santa Maria Independent School District, Morgan v. Kerrigan, Evans v. Buchanan, Morales v. Shannon, Aspira v. Board of Education of the City of New York, U.S. v. Board of Education of Waterbury, and Keyes v. School District No. 1 Denver.   [More]  Descriptors: Biculturalism, Bilingual Education, Court Litigation, Educational Legislation

del Valle, Manuel; And Others (1978). Law and Bilingual Education: A Manual for the Community. This manual was written in order to help community workers become more familiar with the litigation process as it affects bilingual education programs. Detailed descriptions of the participants in civil rights litigation, including bilingual-bicultural lawsuits, are provided. The roles that class members, clients, attorneys and educators play in the litigation process are clarified. A case study is used to exemplify the process explained. Each step, from the initial complaint through "El Vacio" (the void or extent of time that litigation goes on with no definite action taken), to the presentation of proposed remedial programs or action for resolving the complaint and attorneys' fees, is described. The negative and positive impacts that desegregation has on bilingual-bicultural education programs, particularly as they affect the Puerto Rican community, are discussed. Appendices provide information on various aspects of civil rights litigation, including problems of implementing bilingual-bicultural programs in desegregating school districts.
