I Do and I Understand (Glen Helen Workshop: April 29-May 1, 1971).
Pinson, Rosie Barajas; And Others
During the teacher workshop conducted at the Glen Helen Outdoor Education Center at Yellow Springs, Ohio, oral language techniques, Mexican American culture, and outdoor education were given high priority in training teachers to serve migrant children effectively. Four of the workshop presentations have been adapted for this publication. One of these, a rationale for oral language development, contains 12 pattern drills which can be used by any classroom teacher to help children master basic English language patterns; some of the types of drills presented are repetition drills, substitution drills, transformation drills, conversation drills, and addition drills. Another presentation, entitled Helping Spanish-Speaking Children Who Say "Teach Me the English," offers similar and dissimilar patterns in word order and grammatical structure. The other sections are (1) The Future of the Mexican American--With an Optimistic Eye and (2) Outdoor Education Resources and Activities. Each section contains pictures as well as a narrative discussion of the presentation. (JB)
