Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau. (1979). Our Rainbow Heritage–Strengthening Multicultural Education for Today and Tomorrow. Annual Alaska Bilingual–Multicultural Education Conference (5th). Designed to meet the needs of all persons involved or interested in bilingual/multicultural education in Alaskan communities, the Fifth Annual Bilingual-Multicultural Education Conference provided workshop presentations, speeches, and exhibits in the areas of program planning, curriculum and materials development, staff training, classroom instruction, evaluation, and parent/community involvement. The 34 workshops and presentations from Alaskan school districts were attended by parents, advisory committee members, school board members, school district administrators, instructional staff, and persons involved in materials development and teacher training for bilingual programs. University credit was given for a total of 14 hours of workshop attendance. Conference evaluation sheets indicated that highlights of the conference were the variety of topics of the workshops and presenters, the variety of cultural entertainment, and the opportunity to learn from each other. Eighty per cent of the 400 participants felt that the conference met their needs for bilingual/multicultural education.   [More]  Descriptors: Alaska Natives, American Indian Education, American Indians, Bilingual Education

Zaetta, Robert (1975). Guidelines for Bilingual/Bicultural Education. These guidelines were developed for administrators and teachers involved in bilingual/bicultural programs for children of limited English-speaking ability. They are designed to assist those developing such programs in the regular school curriculum as well as in summer programs. Though they follow the federal guidelines for Title VII bilingual/bicultural education, the guidelines presented here are also based on the latest research in bilingual/bicultural education and on actual observation of such programs. The following topics are covered by the guidelines; (1) curriculum, (2) staffing, (3) instructional materials, (4) student assignment and testing and (5) community involvement.

Biava, Christina (1990). Native American Languages and Literacy: Issues of Orthography Choice and Bilingual Education, Kansas Working Papers in Linguistics. Native American language communities have had four choices regarding the adoption or change of a writing system in recent years: to adopt or not to adopt a system, or in the case of an existing system, to alter it or not to alter it. The paper also examines the criteria of orthography choice and functions of literacy. Bilingual education issues are seen as the most important function of Native language literacies. Also examined are problems that face Native language literacy programs.

Arizona Education Policy Initiative (2005). The Condition of Pre-K-12 Education in Arizona: 2005. This paper, the second annual report by the Arizona Education Policy Initiative (AEPI), is a collection of policy briefs on key issues in Arizona education. The authors of these briefs are on the faculty of Arizona's three public universities: Arizona State University (ASU), Northern Arizona University (NAU), and the University of Arizona (UA). Michael Kelley of ASU West and Joseph Tobin and Karen Ortiz of ASU Tempe note that the condition of early education and care remains largely unchanged since 2004. "Collection of Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) data continues to be extremely fragmented (collected by multiple state agencies and community organizations) and difficult to obtain, creating difficulty in making accurate comparisons or assumptions." Although the authors identify a number of initiatives implemented since the release of the 2004 report, they caution that significant systemic change has not occurred. Kate Mahoney of ASU East and Jeff MacSwan and Marilyn Thompson of ASU Tempe conduct a review of recent studies about the effectiveness of Structured English Immersion (SEI) and bilingual education programs. The authors conclude that the research findings are at odds with the current philosophy and direction of Arizona's language policies. In their brief on special education, ASU Tempe professors Sarup R. Mathur and Rob Rutherford address the tension between the goals of NCLB, which focuses on accountability standards for all students, and the individualized instruction required for Arizona's Special Needs children. They discuss the uncertainty among special educators as they work to meet the provisions of NCLB. They also highlight promising practices developed from university and state partnerships, and calls for additional collaborative efforts to address other special education challenges in Arizona. Francis Reimer of NAU documents the extent of the achievement gap for Arizona minority students using academic indicators that are central to NCLB: graduation rates, dropout rates, and scores for Arizona's Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS). She also identifies two state policy issues that, if not addressed, could hinder Arizona's efforts to educate all children and close the achievement gap between majority and minority students: the delay in providing sufficient funds for the education of ELL students and limitations in state data collection. Sherry Markel of NAU reviews State Board minutes over a 14-month period and highlights how the policies adopted will influence the training of new teachers and the ongoing professional development of the current teaching force. In their analysis of school administration in Arizona, Arnold Danzig (ASU Tempe), Walter Delecki (NAU), and David Quinn (UA) highlight the challenges principals face in the current era of accountability. The authors explore how unprecedented state intervention for failing schools through the use of Arizona Department of Education (ADE) Solutions Teams affects principals. They also raise questions about the effectiveness of certification tests for administrators and discuss the practice of re-hiring retired school administrators. The authors caution that the decision to re-hire retired administrators slows the entry of new people into the field, which could stunt the introduction of new ideas, energies, and capacities for learning into schools. David Garcia of ASU Tempe analyzes the relationship between the Arizona LEARNS school labels and 2004 AIMS scores. He finds confusing variability in school performance across individual schools. For example, two elementary schools, one with 0 percent of students meeting or exceeding the standards in 2004 and another school with 93 percent of students meeting the same standards, are both classified with a "Performing" label. The author then offers several explanations for the discrepancy between school labels and AIMS scores, and recommends that policy makers provide clear and consistent information to parents. Darrell Sabers and Sonya Powers of UA provide an informative overview of standardized testing that should be requisite reading for all consumers of test scores. The brief is tailored to inform the reader about Arizona's standardized assessment, the Dual-Purpose Assessment. The authors discuss how well assessment tests meet their intended purpose and the impact of testing for accountability on classroom instruction. In her brief on the state of technology in Arizona public education, Laura E. Sujo de Montes of NAU reviews research that demonstrates how meaningful integration of 3 technology into instruction can improve student academic achievement. However, despite the general availability of technology in Arizona schools, the author notes Arizona educators are not effectively integrating technology and instruction. Sujo de Montes concludes by discussing the inadequacies of technology education in relation to Arizona's aspirations to excel in the knowledge economy. Ric Wiggall of NAU contrasts Arizona's standards movement with state funding to support it. He notes policy makers have not taken into consideration the "two-edged nature of accountability." The development of a system of standards and measurements to hold schools (and students) accountable also requires a new approach focused on differentiated funding that takes into account the varying needs of students. He concludes, however, "policies promoted by the Arizona legislature appear to be focused on restricting funds for core instructional purposes to the greatest degree possible and financially promoting a competitive system that offers alternatives (charter schools, vouchers, tax credits) to traditional public schools." Individual articles contain tables, figures, notes and references.

Pulu, Tupou L.; Pope, Mary L. (1982). Because We Cherish You: A Time for Celebration. Report of the Annual Bilingual-Multicultural Education Conference (8th, Anchorage, Alaska, February 17-19, 1981). The Eighth Annual Bilingual/Multicultural Education Conference, sponsored by the Alaska State Department of Education and supported by 36 additional organizations and school districts, was a major activity of the department in providing training assistance to all persons involved in bilingual-bicultural education programs in Alaska. The conference theme, "Because We Cherish You: A Time For Celebration," was selected to emphasize the importance of youth and their education in the eyes of Alaska's elders. At the same time, the conference emphasized the important roles played by elders, parents, community members, students, and school personnel in developing and implementing educational programs for Alaska's youth. Over 70 workshops were offered to help conference participants to more fully participate in bilingual/multicultural education programs at the community and school district levels. Highlighting the conference were 14 presentations of the arts of Alaska's major ethnic groups performing dances, songs, shows of ethnic costumes, and displays of various art forms.

Trueba, Enrique T. (1976). Issues and Problems in Bilingual Bicultural Education Today, Journal of the National Association for Bilingual Education. Today bilingual bicultural education is the single most important development in American education, because it represents a departure from the American ethnocentrism in previous decades, and increases respect for the rights of ethnic children, and a sensitive response to their needs. The little known about the effects of bilingual bicultural education in its short existence as an organized Federal and state funded major effort, leads to the belief that it has great potentiality, is not divise or wasteful, and could, in fact, be the answer to the deep cognitive and developmental problems of many ethnic children.
