Study Trips. Chinese Bilingual Pilot Program.
This publication was prepared as part of the Chinese Bilingual Pilot Program, funded under Title VII of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act. The units described in this document provide a series of study trips around Chinatown in San Francisco, California and the surrounding areas. Through these units children will become familiar with vital businesses of the Chinese community and at the same time, will learn about similar businesses outside of Chinatown. These units will help children in a racially integrated class learn and appreciate each other's culture through many shared, bicultural experiences. These shared bicultural experiences will also help to develop an awareness and appreciation of one's own heritage. Followup activities in all areas of the school curriculum are listed with the study trips. The aim of the oral language program is to provide maximum involvement of each child. Although these units are written for Title VII, Chinese Bilingual Pilot Program, they can be used successfully in the regular school program. (Author/JM)
