The Bilingual - Bicultural Education Program of the Institute of American Studies, Trinity College.
Trinity Coll., Washington, DC.
The Bilingual-Bicultural Education Program of the Institute of American Studies attempts to develop the sensitivity and skill needed to teach and work in cross-cultural settings. The course of study includes both the modern curricula and methodology involved in the teaching of language and the social and cultural forces inherent in language. Instruction is offered for undergraduate and graduate credit, the latter leading to the Master of Arts in Teaching degree with a concentration in bilingual-bicultural education. A certificate in teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and Dialects (TESOLD) is also granted. Supplementing course work are practica and field study. These provide the opportunity to apply understandings and skills by working with international students attending the American Language Academy, by bilingual teaching in the schools of the area, or by working with ethnic groups living within the District of Columbia.
