Developing Curriculum for Bilingual Education.
This document describes the work of the Spanish Curricula Development Center, a project funded by the Bilingual Education Program Branch of the United States Office of Education. It is the function of the Center to develop multidisciplinary resource kits to help support the major areas of instruction in Spanish at the primary level. Forty-eight kits are planned; kits 1-8 have been completed and kits 9-24 are in progress, covering first grade and the first half of second grade. Each kit provides two weeks of work and covers five areas of instruction: Language Arts--Vernacular, Social Science, Science/Mathematics, Fine Arts, and Spanish--Second Language. The means for evaluation of pupils' progress are provided in each kit along with supplementary audiovisual and manipulative materials. A product design or overview is included. Further details on the design and use of the kits and on the educational strands and assessment activities are provided here. (VM)
