A Review of the Provisions in Vancouver Schools for New Canadians at the Primary Level.
Reid, Marilyn J.; Guinet, Lynne
Special arrangements for the teaching of English to New Canadians (children who are recently-landed immigrants, or those for whom English is a second language) have existed at the primary level for five years. The most frequent approach involved children leaving their regular classes to meet in special classes, varying in size, and duration and frequency of lessons. Results of the study support the continuation and extension of English instruction programs. Results of a questionnaire administered to principals of the seven schools involved in the program are included. (DLG)
