EDUCATION OF THE MIGRANT CHILD.
POTTS, ALFRED M.
THE EDUCATIVE PROCESS SHOULD AID THE MIGRANT CHILDREN TO LIVE A FULLER LIFE IN RELATION TO THEIR POTENTIAL AND SHOULD CONTAIN BROADER AND LESS RESTRICTIVE PATTERNS OF CULTURAL EXPECTANCIES. ALTHOUGH ACADEMIC KNOWLEDGE IS ESSENTIAL, A MORE PROMINENT PLACE MUST BE ASSIGNED TO AREAS OF KNOWLEDGE RELATED TO COMPREHENSION OF CULTURALLY INSPIRED RESPONSES. PRACTICES TO PROMOTE THE KIND OF LEARNING THAT RELATES TO CULTURAL EXPECTANCIES AND TO PROMOTE THE ABILITIES TO RESPOND ADEQUATELY IN HUMAN INTERRELATIONSHIPS SHOULD BE UTILIZED. CLASS SIZE SHOULD BE REDUCED TO 15, THEREFORE ALLOWING FOR INDIVIDUALIZATION. TEACHERS SHOULD BE COMPETENT IN ALL SUBJECTS WITHIN A RANGE OF AT LEAST TWO GRADES ABOVE AND BELOW THE ASSIGNED GRADE. TOTAL DEPARTMENTALIZATION SHOULD BE AVOIDED AT LEAST INTO SEVENTH-GRADE. IN ORDER TO DEVELOP THE WILL TO CONTINUE EDUCATION, A SELF-CONTAINED CLASSROOM IS RECOMMENDED. ANOTHER PRACTICE IS EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING, IN WHICH CHILDREN ARE HELPED TO UNDERSTAND CERTAIN MEANINGS AND CONCEPTS BY ENLISTING THEIR ACTIVE PARTICIPATION IN DEMONSTRATIONS OF THE CONCEPT BEING LEARNED, FOR EXAMPLE, FIELD TRIPS.
