Our Rainbow Heritage--Strengthening Multicultural Education for Today and Tomorrow. Annual Alaska Bilingual--Multicultural Education Conference (5th).
Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau.
Designed to meet the needs of all persons involved or interested in bilingual/multicultural education in Alaskan communities, the Fifth Annual Bilingual-Multicultural Education Conference provided workshop presentations, speeches, and exhibits in the areas of program planning, curriculum and materials development, staff training, classroom instruction, evaluation, and parent/community involvement. The 34 workshops and presentations from Alaskan school districts were attended by parents, advisory committee members, school board members, school district administrators, instructional staff, and persons involved in materials development and teacher training for bilingual programs. University credit was given for a total of 14 hours of workshop attendance. Conference evaluation sheets indicated that highlights of the conference were the variety of topics of the workshops and presenters, the variety of cultural entertainment, and the opportunity to learn from each other. Eighty per cent of the 400 participants felt that the conference met their needs for bilingual/multicultural education. (CM)
