Course of Study; Altus Linguistic Laboratory Altus Independent School District 18, Altus, Oklahoma, 1968.
Oklahoma State Dept. of Education, Oklahoma City.
A course of study in the teaching of English to Spanish-speaking migrant children at elementary level was developed and put into use during the 1967-68 school year by the Altus Public Schools Migrant Linguistic Laboratory in Oklahoma. This course of study was designed to include an oral English emphasis, without destroying pride in the mother tongue and culture. Approximately 200 migrant children attending school in the Altus Independent School District were taught under the program during the 1967-68 school year. By the third week of school the program was divided into 3 classroom components: an audio-visual room, an electronics laboratory, and a conference room. Each child had an opportunity to be in each of the 3 classes each week. Approximately 100 records, films, and tapes were utilized in conjunction with the program. The course of study includes a schedule of activities for 36 separate weekly units. (EV)
