Annual International Multilingual, Multicultural Conference: Proceedings (1st, San Diego, California, April 1-5, 1973).
Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
The mission of this 1973 multilingual multicultural conference was to focus on the student who has a primary language other than English as his language of conceptualization. The conference attempted to illustrate the need for bilingual bicultural education in which a student, using his primary language, gains access to an academic world within which he capitalizes on his cultural heritage and enriches his cognitive and verbal processes. Attempts were made to have representatives at the conference from all ethnic groups receiving Title VII Elementary and Secondary Education Act funds, and there was a multi-ethnic representation at all conference levels. The conference report gives abstracts, when available, from the 47 papers and discussions presented. The wide range of presentations covers such things as Teacher Training in Chicano Studies; Multi-media Learning Systems and Bilingual Education; Asian-American Bilingual Methodological Concerns; Estudiantina: Forming a Student Cultural Music Group; A Bicultural Perspective of Native Americans: Focusing on Bilingualism; Arguments for Utilizing Bilingual Education with the Deaf; Pre-School Preparation for Migrant Education, Home Intervention: A Self-Contained Center; Bilingual Syntax Measurement; and the Filipino's Search for a Place in the Sun.
