Curriculum Guide for Child Development Centers, Five Year Old Program.
Burke, Eleanor; And Others
The Gallup-McKinley County Schools developed this curriculum guide in an attempt to aid teachers involved in teaching English as a second language to Spanish speaking students and students of Indian descent. The guide provides a brief description of the value systems of the three ethnic groups--Spanish American, Zuni, and Navajo. A phonetic analysis of the likenesses and differences between English and languages of the three groups is also presented. Objectives and activities designed for the five year old student are given in the areas of language development, social studies, numbers, physical education, health, science, music, and art. A bibliography of related materials consisting of 35 books and 18 pamphlets is also provided. (DK)
