Spencer, Maria Gutierrez
Described, in detail, in this speech is the implementation of the Silver City, New Mexico elementary school program to stress bicultural orientation and linguistic development. After brief introductory remarks concerning the identification of the bilingual problem and language teacher responsibility for initiating new bilingual educational programs, there are discussions of (1) program planning, (2) the development of awareness and support at administrative, staff, and community levels, (3) instructional aids and materials, and (4) program design. Reproduced for reference is a memo from the Spanish teachers designed to enlist the support of their fellow-teachers by making them cognizant of the bilingual instruction rationale. (AF)
