PRESCHOOL INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM FOR NON-ENGLISH SPEAKING CHILDREN.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
TEXAS LAW PROVIDES FOR STATE-DISTRICT SPONSORSHIP OF SPECIAL INSTRUCTION FOR CHILDREN WHO ARE DEFICIENT IN ORAL ENGLISH ABILITIES PRIOR TO THEIR ENTERING THE FIRST GRADE. EFFORT IS BEING MADE TO PROVIDE AN ENVIRONMENT AND PERSONNEL SUITABLE TO THE OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAM IN PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICTS. ACTIVITIES MUST BE INSTRUCTIONAL WHILE BEING INTERESTING FOR THE 5-6- YEAR-OLD CHILD. CURRICULUM SHOULD INCLUDE FIVE HUNDRED BASIC WORDS AND MANY COMMON EXPRESSIONS WHILE ENDEAVORING TO ESTABLISH CORRECT LANGUAGE PATTERNS. THE TEACHER MUST PAY ATTENTION TO HER METHOD AND CONTENT OF INSTRUCTION AS WELL AS TO THE MATERIALS USED. PERIODIC EVALUATION OF EACH CHILD'S PROGRESS IS READILY ACHIEVED VIA PRINTED FORMS AND IS HELPFUL TO HIS FIRST GRADE TEACHER. THE HIGH INCIDENCE OF SPANISH-SPEAKING FAMILIES IN TEXAS SHOULD NOT OVERSHADOW THE POSSIBILITY OF OTHER BACKGROUNDS AND LANGUAGE PATTERNS BEING IN THE CHILD'S EXPERIENCE, I.E., GERMAN OR CZECHOSLOVAKIAN. (LIST OF BASIC FIVE-HUNDRED WORDS, COMMON PHRASES, AND 29 ITEM BIBLIOGRAPHY ARE INCLUDED AS WELL AS SUGGESTIONS FOR VOCABULARY PROGRAM AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY.)
