Bilingual/Bicultural Education: A Perspective Model in Multicultural America.
Valencia, Atilano A.
Bilingual/bicultural education, with its focus on the linguistic and cultural needs of America's multicultural population, is emerging as a potential type of educational curriculum. Difficulties encountered by the non-English-speaking child, with instruction presented in a language essentially foreign to him, point to the value of bilingual and cross-cultural education in the instructional program. However, demographic data and careful examination of the educational needs of the children are necessary in ascertaining the type of bilingual program for a geographical area. In this volume, 19 models (some operative, some theoretical) and 9 bilingual programs for Spanish-speaking children are presented to illustrate differences, similarities, and potentialities of the models for implementation elsewhere.
