Developing and Teaching Bilingual Career Units in Preschool.
Groff, Charlotte V.
The development and teaching of a Spanish-English preschool career unit (the Fruit and Vegetable Industry unit), developed to help migrant children enhance their self-images by recognizing the importance of their families' contribution to food production, is described in this paper. A brief description of the development of this unit is provided with some explanation of how a teacher can develop his or her own preschool bilingual unit. The unit includes the program goals, pre-assessment and evaluation sheets, instructions for taking a field trip and having a class visitor, and a series of instructional capsules which describe how to involve children in playing the roles of farmers, field workers, pickers, crew-leaders, and cannery workers. The unit is designed so that it can be taught either over a period of five to ten days or five to seven hours. Language arts, science, math, social studies, and art-related activities are also incorporated into the unit. (Author/JA)
