A Bilingual Oral Language and Conceptual Development Program for Spanish-Speaking Pre-School Children.
Miranda, Consuelo; And Others
This paperbound edition consists of a series of lessons to be used in an English language and conceptual development program for 4 to 5-year-old Spanish-speaking children. The overall goal of the lessons, designed for use with migrant children, is to provide the child with the language and conceptual skills he needs to benefit from a standard school setting. Lessons are built around structured Oral Language Circles and take about 15 minutes each. There are 59 English Circles and 61 Spanish Circles to be used in sequence at a rate of three per day for 8 weeks. The Spanish lessons prepare the child in his first language for the content of English, while at the same time helping him to acquire standard alternates for certain nonstandard features of his own dialect. The volume is divided into four parts. Part One includes a description of the program, answers to common questions, and a general listing of a preschool classroom's permanent equipment. Part Two consists of the lessons. Part Three contains an art materials supplement providing patterns for any art work or demonstration objects not easily obtainable within the school. Part Four is an oral language test of productive English which can be used to gauge a child's progress. (JF)
