Instructional Improvement Program in Language and Reading for Selected Subculture Groups in the Southwest.
Ott, Elizabeth
An instructional improvement program in language and reading designed for children deficient in three language areas is described. These children, verbally destitute due to a restricted environment and lack of models and stimulation, users of nonstandard English, possessors of underdeveloped language due to unconceptualized experiences, or bilingual and deficient in both languages, are found to have limited success using abstract symbolism which is foreign to them in terms of experiences and language. The program's plan of development, objectives, teacher education, philosophy, elements, and curriculum design are explained in detail. Emphasis is placed on developing communication skills in a standard English dialect, with simultaneous training in the students' native language. Content stresses universal values. (JB)
