National Conference: Early Childhood Education and the Chicanito (Tucson, Arizona, August 3-5, 1972).
Chavez, Rafael, Ed.
This document reports on a national meeting organized by the State Training Office in Arizona through the combined efforts of Mexican American Systems and the Office of Child Development. The emphasis of the meeting was to encourage implementation of bilingual-bicultural education for Chicanitos at early stages of their development. The first section of the report presents summaries of the activities of 19 small group workshops, with topics incorporating problems of the Chicano child, Mexican-American life style, teacher training, existing bilingual programs, and new approaches to bicultural education. The second part of the report lists the companies who exhibited their bilingual materials at the conference. An abstract bibliography of 20 relevant papers, and a bibliography of 34 textbooks concerned in various ways with bilingual education are included. The final section of the document includes preconference correspondence from government officials, educational administrators, and professors. Results of the workshop evaluations are listed, based on rating scales completed by all participants. The publicity generated by the conference is reviewed, as are initial indications of lasting effects of the meeting. (DP)
