Let's Speak English! Special Language Program (Program Guide and Description of Activities).
Chavez, John E.
A program was established at the Margaret Sheehy School in South Merced, California, to provide social experiences and learning situations aimed at improving the communication skills of the largely Mexican American and Negro student body (grades 1-4). The Special Language Class developed in the program is outlined in this teaching guide. The guide describes the goals and objectives of the program, student selection standards and procedures, plus teaching methodology used in the program. Related activities for children from disadvantaged, non-English speaking and culturally different backgrounds are given. Included are samples of forms used. (DB)
