Classroom Projects and Linguistic Laboratory for Non-English Speaking Children of Oklahoma.
Oklahoma State Dept. of Education, Oklahoma City.
The 5 most pressing educational needs of children of Mexican American migratory workers in Oklahoma are seen to be in (1) inadequate command of the English language, (2) nutritional deficiencies, (3) social adjustment problems, (4) proper physical hygiene, and (5) curricular planning and bilingual personnel. In an effort to meet these needs, the Oklahoma State Department of Education, with the aid of Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title I funds, has initiated several innovative programs including a migrant linguistic laboratory with modern electronic equipment to aid in the improvement of oral communication and reading skills, and a teacher workshop to teach conversational Spanish to teachers of migrant children.
