A Planning Handbook for Bilingual Vocational Education.
Wehrs, George; Aman, Pilar
Designed to provide planning assistance to administrators and staff who offer vocational instruction to persons of limited English proficiency, this guide focuses on three components of a successful program: vocational instruction, language instruction, and support services. The first two chapters address the questions of why these programs should be provided and how to determine local needs for them. The third chapter shifts the focus from why to how, including methods of instruction and presenting a hierarchy of delivery forms for each component. A description of program types discusses the coordination of content and timing between the chosen forms. The chapter on local resources addresses problems of utilizing staff materials and facilities from monolingual vocational programs to develop a bilingual program. The final chapter summarizes on-going planning considerations and continued needs for data collection and evaluation with regard to recruitment, funding, financial aid, state coordination, follow up, and testing, and emphasizes the need for communication between students, staff, community, and administrators. An appendix presents brief descriptions of various types of programs and their implementation, with a contact person for each. (JD)
