Migrant Education Guide.
Gore, Phil; Maestas, Ernest
A summer educational program for the children of migratory Spanish Americans in the Greeley area of Colorado is presented. Philosophically, the approach is one of continuous progress; organizationally, it is nongraded, with emphasis on individualized instruction. Three levels are discussed: Early Primary (ages 5-8), Primary (ages 7-10), and Intermediate (ages 10-14). Each level develops the areas of Communicative Skills, Social Living and Science, Mathematics, Fine Arts, and Music. The Intermediate Level illuminates the Science Program while adding Home Economics and Crafts. With each program discussed, an introduction is followed by an outline of activities and materials. As reported, the course of study described, although designed for migrant child, is equally applicable to all children of Spanish American background. In addition, the course of study may be used "with predictable success with all children identified as needing other than a regular instructional environment." Photographically illustrated, this document also includes an 8-item bibliography oriented to problems encountered in teaching Spanish American students. (MB)
