Handbook for Teachers of Migrant Children.

A wide spectrum of the educational problems common to migrant children are covered in this teacher handbook. Several pages are devoted to developing an appreciation for, understanding of, and empathy for, the migrants and the problems they face. The document also covers the following topics: (1) working with migrant parents, (2) working with aides, (3) the migrant and his curriculum, (4) teaching of language arts, (5) teaching social studies, (6) teaching mathematics, (7) teaching science, (8) teaching health and homemaking, (9) creativity, (10) correlation of subject matter, and (11) student evaluation. The handbook is built around the concept that proper understanding and student expectancy do influence the education of migrants. A 167-item bibliography, indexed by subject area, is included for those who wish to pursue the topic in greater depth. (DB)
