BILINGUAL EDUCATION, RESEARCH AND TEACHING, ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE SOUTHWEST COUNCIL OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHERS (4TH, EL PASO, NOVEMBER 10-11, 1967). REPORTS.
CHRISTIAN, CHESTER, ED.
THE CONFERENCE PAPERS FALL UNDER THREE REPORT HEADINGS--AREAS WHERE RESEARCH IS NEEDED IN BILINGUAL EDUCATION, TEACHING CONTENT IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE, AND BILINGUAL PROGRAMS IN THE SOUTHWEST. WRITERS OF REPORTS ON RESEARCH AREAS SEEM TO AGREE ON THE IMPORTANCE OF TEACHING CONTENT, WHETHER CULTURAL REALITIES OR ACADEMIC SUBJECT MATTER. THE FIRST TWO PAPERS DEAL WITH THEORETICAL ASPECTS OF BILINGUAL EDUCATION IN RELATION TO VERY BROAD SOCIOLOGICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL IMPLICATIONS OF EDUCATION IN MORE THAN ONE LANGUAGE, AND IN TERMS OF MORE THAN ONE SET OF CULTURAL VALUES. THE NEXT THREE PAPERS DEAL WITH SUCH PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS OF BILINGUALISM AND BICULTURALISM AS THE SUCCESSFUL EDUCATION OF CHILDREN OF U.S. CITIZENS LIVING ABROAD, THE UNSUCCESSFUL MONOLINGUAL EDUCATION OF THE AMERICAN INDIAN, AND LEGISLATION ON BILINGUALISM AND BICULTURALISM. FIVE PAPERS ON TEACHING CONTENT SHOW PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF FINDINGS IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS, COLLEGES, AND UNIVERSITIES. THE THIRD REPORT INCLUDES PAPERS ON BILINGUAL PROGRAMS IN SIX SOUTHWEST STATES WHICH STRESS TWO THEMES. FIRST, ATTEMPTS ARE BEING MADE TO INCORPORATE THE STUDENT WHOSE PARENTS SPEAK A LANGUAGE OTHER THAN ENGLISH INTO THE STANDARD SOCIAL AND EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM OF THE UNITED STATES. SECOND, EFFORTS ARE BEING MADE TO EDUCATE ALL SCHOOL CHILDREN IN USING A SECOND LANGUAGE AND UNDERSTANDING A SECOND CULTURE. (AF)
