Spolsky, Bernard, Ed.
Advances in Navajo Bilingual Education are described in this progress report, in which bilingual education is presented as an element in aiding the community to be involved in and to control the Navajo education system. Also, the reports of 3 meetings concerning Navajo education are included. The report of a Navajo bilingual-bicultural materials conference contains curriculum ideas for persons involved with Navajo language teaching. A proposal for a Navajo Bilingual Education Program forms a major part of the report of a meeting of students and faculty held at the University of New Mexico (UNM) to discuss Navajo Bilingual Teacher Education. The report of the third meeting, also held at UNM, discusses the training of Navajo bilingual teachers. Lists of participants in the meetings and a "Supplement to the Analytical Bibliography of Navajo Reading Materials" are also presented. (PS)
