Institute in Portuguese (EPDA), June 23, 1969 to August 8, 1969. Report.
Andrews, Norwood, Jr.
Vanderbilt University's 1969 EPDA Summer In-Service Institute for Training in Portuguese was a flexible, dual program in the fields of foreign language (specifically Portuguese) and English as a second language. Objectives were to provide: (1) adequately trained personnel to maintain and develop existing conventional secondary school Portuguese language programs; (2) trained personnel to implement new such programs in previously identified nuclei of interest; (3) personnel trained in the Portuguese language, Portuguese cultural and civilizational background, and relevant methodologies to staff ESOL programs for monolingual Portuguese-speaking immigrant students. In this last context, it was conceived as a pilot program leading toward the establishment of true bilingual education in the areas in question (principally southeastern Massachusetts, northeastern Rhode Island, and parts of California) through the training of a nucleus of staff. (This report consists of the Director's Report and various appendixes, including staff evaluations of the program and specific courses, participants' evaluation of the program, and communications to participants. The staff evaluation of participants is not included in this document.) [Not available in hardcopy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (Author/AMM)
