Bilingual Teacher Preparation Conference Report.
Prince, Donald M.; And Others
This document discusses recommendations of a workshop-seminar concerning undergraduate and graduate teacher education programs, programs for those with degrees from outside the U.S., and teacher certification for bilingual teaching in Illinois. Three general administrative recommendations are made that are applicable to undergraduate and graduate programs, and three recommendations are directed to colleges and universities that have bilingual programs in the planning and implementation stages. A general format is suggested for undergraduate bilingual teacher preparation programs, and areas to be covered in graduate programs such as language proficiency, linguistics, and culture are recommended. Seven recommendations are made concerning the preparation of those with degrees from outside the U.S. Finally, three recommendations are made concerning requirements for teacher certification for bilingual teachers. A copy of Public Act 78-727, an overview of bilingual education today, a list of workshop-seminar participants, a list of requirements for a suggested standard of bilingual/cross-cultural teacher education preparation, and guidelines for the preparation and certification of teachers of bilingual-bicultural education in the U.S. are appended.
