A Model for the Implementation of the Elementary School Curriculum through Bilingual Education.
LaFontaine, Hernan; Pagan, Muriel
The theoretical teaching model described in this document provides a plan whereby a child entering the Bilingual School in kindergarten and remaining in school through sixth grade will have experienced seven years of bilingual instruction and will be able to receive 50% of his instruction in English and 50% in Spanish. This objective is based on consideration of the child's language dominance and the gradual increase of second language instruction through the grades. Included here are language instruction percentages for each subject area on each grade level in terms of language dominance. The actual model, providing for the necessary gradual adjustment into the theoretical model, is also described in terms of language use and subject area percentages. (VM)
