Supplement for Curriculum Guide for Mathematics: Spanish-Speaking Students, Grades 4-6 = Supplemento de la guia didactica de matematicas para los estudiantes de habla hispana, cuatro-sexto grados. Field Test.
Chicago Board of Education, IL.
This supplementary math curriculum guide for use with Spanish-speaking, fouth through sixth grade students in Chicago public schools employs a contrastive analysis approach. Lessons are presented for objectives for which the instructional strategies used in the United States differ from those used in Spanish-speaking countries. (Objectives for which the methodology is the same are taught from the standard math curriculum.) Every lesson has four parts: (1) an explanation of the differences in the instructional strategies used in the Spanish-speaking countries and in the U.S.; (2) a student activity, in Spanish, to reinforce students' skills in using their native language and methodologies; (3) suggestions for facilitating the students' transition from their native methodology to the U.S. methodology; and (4) a transitional activity which provides students with practice in solving problems using both methodologies and languages. The major topics covered are place value, operations with whole numbers, rational numbers, and measurement. An English-Spanish vocabulary list is provided. (CMG)
