Tucker, G. Richard; And Others (1977). Bilingual Education: Current Perspectives. Volume 2: Linguistics. Recognizing a need for an objective, multidisciplinary and comprehensive look at the field of bilingual education, the Office of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and the Center for Applied Linguistics cooperated in a state-of-the-art study of the field. State-of-the-art papers were commissioned in four general areas concerning bilingual education: social science, languages and linguistics, law, and education. Each paper formed the central focus for a separate conference at which it was discussed and elaborated upon by specialists from various fields within a given discipline. This volume is the second in a series of four volumes that present a collection of the major papers and the viewpoints of the discussants. The focus of the volume is linguistics. The state-of-the-art paper is"The Linguistic Perspective," by G. Richard Tucker, and the viewpoints include: "Linguistic Theory," by Charles A. Ferguson; "Teaching Bilingual Children," by Gustavo Gonzalez; "Second Language Learning," by Evelyn R. Hatch; and "Research," by Christina Bratt Paulston. A bibliography concludes the volume.

Factor, Susannah (1978). Loca, Eco Tentokorkvtes (Terrapin Race). Developed as part of the Seminole Bilingual Education Project, this story and coloring book presents the story of "The Terrapin Race" in both Seminole and English. Right-hand pages offer full-page illustrations for students to color; left-hand pages contain a brief narrative in the two languages in large type. The book uses the sounds which the elementary students have been taught; therefore, the spelling of some words is not that found in the Creek Dictionary–for example, the words "lucv" ("loca") and "ecu" ("eco").

Rivera-Viera, Diana (1975). Descriptive Presentation of a Model Integrating Classroom in Accordance with Chapter 766 and 71A. The paper presents a model for the integrating classroom in accordance with Chapter 71A (which deals with bilingual education) and Chapter 766 (which mandates the provision of educational programs tailored to each student's special needs) of Massachusetts Legislation.

Catheline, Michael (1982). Bilingual Education in Ohio: An Overview. This overview of bilingual education ih Ohio includes profiles of bilingual programs in Youngstown, Toledo, Cleveland, and Athens. Current practices in these programs are considered with regard to funding, identification and assessment of students, instructional models, materials, the cultural component of instruction, parental involvement, and staff development. Information is based on funding proposals and other literature obtained from the programs, literature from the state education agency and Lau center in Columbus, interviews with program directors and teachers, and observations of classes. The purpose of the investigation was to fulfill the need for a single, statewide study of bilingual programs serving limited-English-speaking children in Ohio, and to enable bilingual educators within Ohio and in other states to examine current trends and practices in Ohio programs. The following trends are identified: (1) a focus on transitional programs versus maintenance programs; (2) new proposals for federal funding submitted by Ohio educational institutions, with an emphasis on both teacher and parent training; and (3) the use of bilingual education to serve the educational needs of Indochinese children in Ohio.

Pascual, Henry W. (1978). Clients and Teachers in Bilingual Education Programs. Whether bilingual education programs continue to be model projects for demonstrating viable alternatives for the education of Hispanics or general programs to correct deficits in the education of our children, the selection of students for participation in the programs and the training of teachers for these programs are serious responsibilities. Recommendations to the U.S. Office of Education for determining eligibility for bilingual programs suggest including: (1) Hispanic students, regardless of surname, who are on grade level or lower in standardized achievement tests in English language arts, social studies, science, and mathematics; (2) Hispanic students falling within categories outlined in the Lau Remedies; and (3) any Hispanic students wishing access to bilingual education, regardless of economic background or English proficiency. Bilingual teacher training programs should provide: demonstrable competence in understanding, speaking, reading, and writing the non-English language; study of the history, civilization, fine arts, and literature of the people whose culture is to be taught or learned; study of specific language pedagogy; teaching the academic content in Spanish; training in socio and psycholinguistic factors impinging upon the learning process; and training in teaching of English, both as a second and first language.

Egan, Lawrence A. (1981). Bilingual Education: A Challenge for the Future. Colorado's bilingual program, which allows Anglo children to participate on a voluntary basis, has been successful in increasing skills in English and in achievement areas measured by English standardized achievement tests, and in improving self concept, attendance, and parent participation. Opponents of bilingual education have claimed that it endangers the melting pot principle, that earlier immigrants pulled themselves up by their bootstraps, and that bilingual education enhances separatism, preserves ghettos and barrios, and delays the integration of non-English speaking children into the mainstream of American society. These myths "seem to be a 'rational' attempt to justify our ethnocentrism and latent racism." A creative bilingual program freed of various restrictions imposed by federal and state funding requirements could: (1) encourage majority group participation; (2) allow children to learn in two languages so that they are bilingual; (3) offer equal educational opportunity for all and provide a pool of capable bilingual citizens for diplomacy, commerce, and other fields of endeavor; (4) foster integration and cultural understanding; and (5) create a learning environment in which the languages and cultures of all the students are treated with equal respect.

Ogawa, Dennis M. (1975). Identity, Dissonance and Bilingualism: Communication Problems of Asian American Assimilation. A study of Asian American communication depends upon an appreciation of the diversity of identity perceptions, the potential for cultural dissonance, and the linguistic difficulties of Asian immigrants. The variations and multiplicities found among Asian Americans in cultural background, settlement patterns, and cultural adaptions of different generations are necessary determinants of interethnic racial discord and jealousies rather than harmonious dialogue and cultural interchange. The recent trend toward recognizing bilingual education as both facilitating intercultural contact and enhancing communicative skills and techniques promises a more realistic cultural pluralism.   [More]  Descriptors: Asian Americans, Bilingual Education, Bilingualism, Communication Problems
