Gottlieb, Margo H. (1985). Communicative, Language, and Academic Proficiencies of Limited English Proficient and Native English Speaking Elementary School Students. A research project investigated communicative language skills and the academic proficiency of native English speakers and limited-English-speaking (LEP) elementary school students. The subjects were 304 native English speakers and bilingual program participants, speakers of Lao and Spanish. The data are derived from a locally developed assessment system that has been validated. The results, based on analysis by language subsample, by grade and across grades, confirm that there are qualitative and quantitativce differences between the groups in all the investigated facets of English language proficiency. Meaningful intercorrelations among second language, school-based proficiencies are found in LEP students. A statistically significant association between receptive communicative proficiency and academic proficiency emerges for younger, but not older, native English speakers. A theoretical framework that captures the relationships among the stated proficiencies is found viable for both LEP and native English-speaking students. The implications of these findings for ESL and bilingual education programs are discussed.   [More]  Descriptors: Academic Achievement, Bilingual Education, Communicative Competence (Languages), Comparative Analysis

Tucker, G. Richard (1989). Cognitive and Social Correlates of Bilinguality. A discussion of research on the cognitive, personal, and social correlates of bilingualism focuses on those consequences for individuals who are "caused" to become bilingual by their participation in innovative language education programs such as immersion, bilingual immersion, interlocking, or two-way bilingual programs. The purpose of this paper is to counter-balance the negatively-charged debate surrounding a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution declaring English to be the sole and official language of the country. Fuel for the controversy is seen as hinging on misunderstanding of issues related to bilingual education. The changing language education needs of language minority and language majority children are discussed, an innovative approach to language education designed to foster additive bilingualism is described, and the likely correlates of such bilingualism are identified, based on a review of relevant research literature.   [More]  Descriptors: Bilingualism, Cognitive Processes, Educational Planning, Educational Policy

Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing. (1977). Bilingual Instruction in Michigan: A Position Statement by the State Board of Education. This paper sets forth the position of the Michigan State Board of Education regarding bilingual instruction. First is a summary of policies already established as a result of the adoption of "The Common Goals of Michigan Education," the rulings of the U.S. Supreme Court as enunciated in Lau vs Nichols, federal legislation (ESEA Title VII, 1965 and Civil Rights Act, 1964) and state law (Public Act 294, 1974). The second part is a position statement containing seven guides for action which should fully implement Act 294 and encourage bilingual education to become an integral part of a program of quality education. It attempts to achieve a balance between the traditional American educational institution's assimilationist view and the right of individuals and groups to maintain their particular identities within a pluralistic society.   [More]  Descriptors: Biculturalism, Bilingual Education, Bilingual Schools, Bilingual Students

Mecklenburger, James A. (1979). What Priority for "Global Education". An NSBA Survey of School Board Members and School Superintendents. Results of a nationwide survey of school board members and superintendents indicate that although most districts approve of global education, other priorities are seen as more pressing. Responses were received by 215 school board presidents and 833 superintendents, for a total sample of 1,048. Participants were questioned about general educational trends and priorities before being questioned about global education specifically. The respondents preferred an emphasis on career, family, and consumer education. They believed that curriculum expansion should occur in vocational, industrial, economic, and basic education. Areas of least interest, and financial support included bilingual education, foreign language, field trips, and student exchange programs. On questions concerning global education specifically, 60% indicated that global education is an important issue and 80% suggested that it is an approach that school boards need to know more about. Impediments to global education were identified as concerns for the basics, higher priorities, funding, and lack of teacher preparation.

Iribarren, Norma (1988). A Resource Compendium of Assessment Instruments Which Can Be Used To Help Schools in the Education of LEP Students. Test instruments designed for limited English proficient (LEP) students from pre-school through adult are reviewed in this annotated bibliography. The assessments cited have been evaluated for reliability, validity, and equity, the latter being an emerging criterion in the process of evaluating assessment instruments. The tests most commonly used in bilingual education environments are represented, but it is noted that there is no 100% reliable instrument that is tailored to individual LEP student needs. The tests are grouped under the following categories: achievement tests (17 tests); language proficiency (23 tests); tests of aptitude, general ability, intelligence or cognitive development (13 tests); vocational, career, and attitudinal inventories (four inventories); and personality inventories (two inventories). Each citation includes a description, author, grade level, administration time, type of administration, language(s) assessed, and publisher.   [More]  Descriptors: Achievement Tests, Annotated Bibliographies, Aptitude Tests, Elementary Secondary Education

Massachusetts State Coll. System, Buzzards Bay. Center for International Education. (1974). Report of the Bilingual-Bicultural Workshop, August 20-23, 1974 Sponsored by the Center for International Education. The purpose of this conference was to produce a set of recommendations and suggestions that could be available to teacher training institutions, state education agencies, and other private and public institutions concerned with the study of ethnicity and bilingualism/biculturalism. Five major topics that form the basis for the report are training programs, training programs (related services and aides), overlapping programs, ethnicity, and supply and demand. Recommendations are brought together under 12 headings. Brief summaries of the rationales leading to and suggestions for implementation of each recommendation are included under each recommendation. Among the major headings dealt with are preparation of American teachers for teaching services in a foreign country, preparation of teachers trained abroad for teaching in the U.S., preparation of bilingual teachers to teach adult basic education programs, upgrading of certification requirements and techniques, training for persons in related services in second language experience, the expansion of present bilingual programs, and research on bilingual education.   [More]  Descriptors: Biculturalism, Bilingual Education, Bilingual Students, Bilingualism
