Report of the Consortium of NDEA Institutes in English for Speakers of Other Language.
A consortium program for Advanced Study in the Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages, funded by the U.S. Office of Education and sponsored by the N.Y. Board of Education in cooperation with the Research Foundation of City University of New York, was held in the summer of 1968 in four local colleges: (1) Brooklyn College of City University, for teachers of kindergarten through grade 4; (2) Ferkauf Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences of Yeshiva University, for teachers of grades 5-8; (3) Hunter College of City University, for teachers of grades 9-12; and (4) Teacher College of Columbia University, for special teachers and coordinators. Discussed in this Report are some prime objectives of the consortium--meeting the critical need for teachers trained in English as a second language, providing study and training locally for teachers at every grade level, acquainting teachers with ongoing research and modern methodology and resources. Also discussed are the selection of participants (over 150); special features of the various programs (sensitivity training, parent involvement, community relationship, skills development, shock language learning); special consortium activities; publicity; and program evaluation by the directors. Appended are lists of participants, sample questionnaires and a follow-up letter. (AMM)
