Cultural and Program Awareness Manual for Migrant Educators. Directions and Program Awareness for Administrators, Teachers, and Aides.
Flores, Merced; And Others
Intended for administrators, teachers, aides, and personnel working with children of seasonal farmworkers, the manual, designed to help educators understand the Title I-M program and the children it serves, addresses such specific areas as migration patterns, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, English as a second language (ESL), problems of secondary youth, multicultural education, and a general understanding of the migrant child. Educators can use all or part of the manual to conduct workshops, meetings, classroom lessons, individual and small group tutoring sessions, or to learn more about the migrant education program and its orientation. Divided into eight sections, the first four sections deal with the nature, funding efforts, and goals of the Title I-M program; describe and illustrate state and national travel patterns of migrant workers; explain the mobile life, characteristics, and problems of migrant children; and deal with the two major ethnic groups in Oregon, the Mexican American and the Russian Old-Believers. The last four sections deal with language differences of the migrant child and ESL activities; show how schools can set up a viable multicultural program and provide motivation for the Chicano student; identify and define 81 migrant education terms; and list 223 educational and instructional resources and materials.
