A Developmental Program for Teaching English as a Second Language to Preschool Children.
Gonzalez-Mena, Janet
The Cuauhtemoc Bilingual Preschool Project, Redwood City, California, is designed to teach Spanish-speaking preschoolers English in classes conducted in their homes. The lesson plans (called "English Experiences") are based on a set of principles: (1) establishment of a language relationship is an important means of motivating the child to learn the target language, (2) young children need a total development program, and (3) children learn by doing. Emphasis is placed on the child's need to learn language in real situations with concrete experiences, while retaining his original language and self-esteem. Teaching methods are discussed, and nine specific performance objectives of the Cuauhtemoc Project are outlined. A list of suggested activities, materials, books, and songs are included. A child's picture-word matching workbook is also included. (ST)
