This annotated bibliography of twenty-one research reports that provide knowledge about various cultures and educational experiences of the major ethnic groups in the Toronto schools is designed to present information for not only special English teachers, but other school personnel as well. The bibliography consists of reports that aim to: 1) describe and compare native Canadian students and immigrants in the Toronto schools; 2) summarize teacher's responses to a questionnaire on suggestions for improving the present system; 3) assess some of the English language skills of a large sampling of students; 4) familiarize teachers with the educational, cultural, historical, and economic backgrounds of Chinese, Italian, and Greek students by describing and listing multi-media packages; 5) provide a "snapshot" of the initial settlement patterns of newcomers to Toronto; 6) determine if immigrant students are less likely to be in a five year academic programme; and, 8) provide data about special English programs for the New Canadian student. Related document is SO 002 744. (Author/SJM)
