Bilingual Vocational Instructional Materials.
Lopez-Cox, Guadalupe; And Others
This teacher's guide introduces a series of instructional materials in vocational education for use in bilingual English-Spanish vocational programs. The narrative-format guide first provides a model with flowchart of a bilingual vocational education program. The program's components include pretraining assessment, counseling and individualized program of study, vocational and English-as-a-second-language components of the program, posttraining assessment, and job placement. Following the model, the first part of the guide covers the background and essential elements of a bilingual vocational program. Topics discussed include the following: the vocational staff and their characteristics, developing instructional materials, planning the language component, and linguistic aspects of vocational English. The second section of the guide presents teaching strategies and techniques to be used in the bilingual program, such as basic learning principles, characteristics of a lesson, lesson plans, self-instructional modules, handouts, slides and transparencies, simulation activities, lectures, demonstration techniques, student activities, and team teaching. The final section provides directions for developing an individualized instructional program. (KC)
