BILINGUALISM AND THE BILINGUAL CHILD--A SYMPOSIUM.
Texas Univ., Austin.
AN UNDERSTANDING OF BILINGUALISM AND ITS EFFECT ON INDIVIDUAL LEARNING PROCESSES WAS THE THEME OF THESE PAPERS PREPARED FOR A JUNE 1964 CONFERENCE FOR THE TEACHER OF THE BILINGUAL CHILD (UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS). TWO PAPERS SUBMITTED BY JOSHUA A. FISHMAN DISCUSS THE STATUS OF NON-ENGLISH LANGUAGE RESOURCES IN THE UNITED STATES, THE PROSPECTS FOR THE PRESERVATION OF THESE RESOURCES, AND THE POSSIBLE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN BILINGUALISM, INTELLIGENCE, AND LANGUAGE LEARNING. THE NEED TO CORRECT CURRENT MISEDUCATION OF SPANISH-SPEAKING CHILDREN IN THE SOUTH AND SOUTHWEST, AND THE APPLICATION OF PRINCIPLES LEARNED FROM LANGUAGE EDUCATION OF BILINGUALS TO LANGUAGE EDUCATION IN GENERAL IS STRESSED BY THEODORE ANDERSSON. ACCULTURATION OF THE BILINGUAL CHILD IS PROMOTED IN CHESTER C. CHRISTIAN JR.'S REPORT. A. BRUCE GAARDER DISCUSSES THE RESEARCH EFFORTS DESIGNED TO STRENGTHEN AND MAINTAIN A CHILD'S MOTHER TONGUE, WHICH IN TURN COULD HAVE POSITIVE EFFECTS ON THAT YOUNGSTER'S INTELLECT, PERSONALITY, AND ABILITY TO LEARN ENGLISH. THE LAST TWO PAPERS PRESENTED HERE FIND THE AUTHORS, DAVID T. HAKES, AND PAULINE M. ROJAS, DEALING RESPECTIVELY WITH UNDERSTANDING THE BILINGUAL THROUGH PSYCHOLOGY, AND INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS SPECIFICALLY GEARED FOR BILINGUALS. THIS IS A REPRINT FROM "THE MODERN LANGUAGE JOURNAL," VOLUME 49, NUMBERS 3 AND 4, MARCH AND APRIL 1965, PAGES 143-175, 220-239. (AF)
