Goals of the National Conference on Bilingual Education, held on April 14-15, 1972 in Austin, Texas, were to emphasize bilingual education interaction at the national level using outstanding consultants from throughout the United States and to exchange ideas among educators in existing programs. The conference was also organized to give bilingual educators greater national recognition as a priority for the education of children whose home language is not English. Participants included teachers, administrators, community representatives, school board members, and other local, state and national officials. Sessions covered such areas as skills teaching methodology, cultural implications, psychological aspects of the teaching-learning process, reading instruction, curriculum development, literature, and tests and measurements. General sessions were scheduled for sharing ideas and concerns. In this document, the conference proceedings followed the agenda. The session, "Pensamientos Sobre La Literatura Chicana", was the only one in Spanish. The appendix listed program participants and their titles. (NQ)
