Problems of Cross-Cultural Communication in Developing Bilingual Bicultural Education Programs.
Tipton, Robert L.
Bilingual, bicultural instruction is not an attempt to change the language or the culture of students. It is designed to develop behavior patterns which are acceptable in the context of more than one cultural environment. Recognizing that all cultures are equally valid, it is essential that teachers prevent one language and culture from dominating the other in the classroom. There must be no attempt to force Anglo-Saxon Protestant mores and language upon individuals from other groups. Knowledge must be presented in reference to more than one cultural framework; behavior must be judged by more than one ethnic system. (EE)
