Escuchando no mas (Just by Listening): A Report on Sabbatical Year Activities in Bolivia (January 24 to April 1, 1991).
Leavitt, Robert M.
A college faculty member reports on a sabbatical project in Bolivia, in which he shared ideas about bilingual and bicultural education in indigenous communities and helped with four activities of the Andean Oral History Workshop: (1) the self-education of a group of women aged 18-70 who decided to explore together issues such as rights, education, textiles, unions, and health as they relate to women; (2) the training of a small group of rural teachers interested in experimenting with bilingual and bicultural education at the elementary and junior high school levels; (3) the writing of a booklet about Aymara phonology to be used in teaching literacy to speakers and non-speakers of Aymara; and (4) development of a dictionary and teaching materials for the Uchumataqa language spoken by the Uru people. The experience is related in narrative form and includes a diary entry about a visit to a native community and a ceremony that occurs there. (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education) (MSE)
