Un Bosquejo del Proyecto Bilingue (Outline of a Bilingual Project).
Compton City Schools, CA.
Bilingual education in English and Spanish is intended to give native speakers of both languages insights into two cultures, a broader background, and greater life opportunities. Spanish-speaking students in bilingual programs can retain their language ties and the ability to communicate with their families and older relatives. The directors of this project believe that students of Hispanic background have a right to Spanish-language instruction, and that bilingual education should be obligatory in all U.S. public schools. This bilingual program attempts to help each student achieve success in reading, mathematics, science, language, and social sciences. The program's underlying functional, philosophical, and humanitarian propositions are listed, including students' achievement goals in speech, writing, and thought. The role of each person involved in the project, from director to bilingual secretary, is detailed. Teaching methods, lesson content, learning objectives and stages in language, reading and mathematics are outlined in the curriculum guide for grades 1-12; and each learning experience is constructed to respond to one of the educational needs or propositions previously listed.
