Proposed Undergraduate Program for Compensatory Bilingual-Bidialectal Education.
Texas Univ., Austin. Coll. of Education.
Based on the assumption that disadvantaged children suffer from two kinds of deficiencies--cultural and linguistic--this program has been designed to help train teachers who are ill-prepared to understand a child's cultural values or to promote the attainment of standard English. This program contains plans for two kinds of studies--(1) Afro-American, which would involve the University of Texas and Houston-Tillotson College, to provide an accurate perspective on the integration of African culture into the American whole, and (2) Mexican-American bilingual studies, which would examine the urgent problems of teaching from a predominantly English system. For both programs, there would be extensive cooperative efforts between the universities and the public schools, especially for the English as a Second Language program. The proposal explains the necessary academic modifications in the education major courses and includes a sample program. Various methods of evaluation are also discussed. (FB)
