Our People, Our Land. A Report of the Annual Bilingual-Multicultural Education Conference (6th, Anchorage, Alaska, February 13-15, 1980).
Pulu, Tupou L.; Pope, Mary L.
Sponsored by the Alaska Department of Education, the Sixth Annual Bilingual-Multicultural Education Conference of 1980 was a major activity of the Department and was designed to provide training assistance to all persons involved in bilingual-bicultural education programs: administrators, teachers, students, and parents. Following the keynote address, participants had the option of registering in workshops on either a credit or non-credit basis. The workshops offered an overview of the bilingual-multicultural program, direction in curriculum and instructional materials development, and training sessions in classroom instruction for teachers. A multicultural arts program enabled participants to experience the art forms of the cultures represented. The report is illustrated with numerous photographs of participants and activities. (CM)
