New York State Education Dept., Albany.
This volume contains five essays on both theory and practical learning techniques for bilingual education and the study of English as a Second Language. In "Bilingual Education: An International, Sociolinguistical Perspective," Joshua Fishman discusses transitional bilingualism, monoliterate bilingualism, partial and full biliterate bilingualism, compensatory programs, enrichment programs, and group maintenance programs. A "Position Paper on the Role of English as a Second Language in Bilingual Education" by the TESOL Organization seeks to promote better understanding and establish a positive professional relationship between the two fields. In "Values Clarification Theory in ESL and Bilingual Education," Kathleen Green discusses some strategies that have been used successfully in a college-level ESL course for foreign students in the United States. In "Language Choice in Bilingual Classrooms," Dorothy Legarreta examines quantitative language choices by teachers and pupils in Spanish bilingual kindergarten classrooms. In "Measuring Values in Multilingual Settings," Jon Jonz seeks to place cultural differences and cultural similarities into clearer perspective and to decrease the probabilitV of the inappropriate application of educational models. General statements are made about the behaviors and beliefs expressed in an article entitled "Cuban Child." In addition, a "cultural index" that was developed in a project is discussed. (SW)
