Achieving Multilingual Education in a Multicultural School: A Teacher Corps Model.
Maxwell, Liz
Presented in this document is an overview of a Teacher Corps project undertaken by the Arlington, Virginia Public Schools and Trinity College, Washington, D.C., to develop a training complex in bilingual/multicultural education at Francis Scott Key Elementary School. The project is described as being an attempt to meet the needs of teachers, students, and a community with a large part of the population severely limited in English. Aspects of the project outlined include parent involvement, the training of bilingual interns, inservice instruction for Key teachers, language classes in Spanish, Korean and Vietnamese for students, and specific activities which paved the way for changes in the school.
