Bilingual Education for American Indians.
Rebert, Robert J., Ed.; And Others
This curriculum bulletin contains articles relevant to problems in bilingual education for American Indians. The first section includes articles presenting a broad view of past and present activities in bilingual education for American Indians and Eskimos. The history of language instruction in American Indian schools and of bilingual education in Bureau of Indian Affairs schools is discussed along with the Bilingual Education Act and its effect on the American Indian. Two statements on bilingualism appear, and a summary of pertinent research in bilingual education is included. Part Two deals with practical aspects and case studies. One article discusses what classroom teachers should know about bilingual education. Three others discuss programs for Navaho children. The final section is a bibliography of approximately 70 books and articles on bilingualism written between 1953 and 1971; some of the more important entries are annotated. One appendix provides a glossary of relevant terms. The second appendix presents some linguistic principles for describing language. (VM)
