Learning on the Move; A Guide for Migrant Education.
Potts, Alfred M., II, Ed.
Ideas, methods, techniques, and materials to aid teachers in the education of migrant children are presented. This guide is the result of 4 weeks of intensive workshop planning and investigation into migrant education by a group of teachers, principals, and agency workers from Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Oregon, Texas, and California. Background information lends insight into administrative problems. Problems discussed are attendance, transportation, placement, student records, and health and lunch programs. The curriculum development presented encompasses educational needs, learning readiness, language arts, mathematical concepts, skill development and enrichment, reading, arts and crafts, science, physical education, and geography which utilizes travel experiences. Worksheets and exercises are outlined which aid in writing and skill development. Samples of forms and tests are included which are used in evaluating placement, reading ability, writing and language skills, and mathematical skill. A bibliography is included. (SW)
