THE PSYCHOLOGICAL AND COGNITIVE ASPECTS OF TEACHING ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE--SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, RESEARCH PROJECT.
STEMMLER, ANNE O.
DESCRIPTIONS WERE GIVEN OF TWO OPERATIONAL FRAMEWORKS FOR THE INSTRUCTION OF EDUCATIONALLY DISADVANTAGED, SPANISH-SPEAKING CHILDREN BETWEEN THE AGES OF 6 AND 9 IN THE FIRST AND SECOND GRADES OF AN ENGLISH-SPEAKING, MIDDLE-CLASS, SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT. THESE FRAMEWORKS, DESIGNATED AS "THE SCIENCE-BASED MODEL" AND "THE SELF-CONCEPT MODEL," WERE DESIGNED TO PROMOTE THE DEVELOPMENT OF ORAL LANGUAGE AND THE ACQUISITION OF BASIC COGNITIVE PATTERNS. THE PROGRAMS WERE DEVELOPED TO ASSIST THESE CHILDREN OVERCOME THE LANGUAGE BARRIER AND THE BARRIER OF DISADVANTAGEDNESS THAT BLOCK MANY OF THEM FROM ACHIEVING SUCCESS IN SCHOOL. FOR THE SCIENCE-BASED MODEL SELECTED SCIENTIFIC CONCEPTS WERE ANALYZED AND ARRANGED ACCORDING TO CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT. PATTERNS OF THINKING AND REASONING WERE USED TO STRUCTURE SCIENTIFIC LEARNING INTO A PROGRAM OF SEQUENTIALLY ORGANIZED LEARNING EXPERIENCES. THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF THE SELF-CONCEPT MODEL WAS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A POSITIVE AND STABLE SELF-CONCEPT, OR SENSE OF PERSONAL IDENTITY, WHICH LIES AT THE HEART OF PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT. A SUPPORTING PROGRAM WAS DEVELOPED FROM EACH OF THESE MODELS. AT THE TIME OF REPORTING, THE PROGRAMS WERE BEING TAUGHT IN THE SAN ANTONIO INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT, SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS. (AL)
