Council of Europe Special Experimental Classes for Migrant Workers' Children, School Year 1972-73. (Strasbourg, France).
Uttar, M.; And Others
A class for adolescent girls of foreign origin was begun in September 1969 at the Vauban "College D'Enseignement Secondaire" (Secondary Teaching College) in Strasbourg. The class became co-educational at the beginning of the 1972-73 academic year. Emphasis is on acquisition of basic French for the purpose of adaptation to the working world or integration into the normal school system. To this end, the teaching staff is in close contact with the Social Service for Foreign Workers and with various bodies concerned with vocational guidance. Recruitment is conducted almost entirely by the Social Service for Foreign Workers. Students are thus all children of immigrant workers. Presented in this report are information given: (1) to the Secretariat by the Strasbourg "Contact et Promotion" Association concerning the class, and (2) by the Principal of the College in his capacity as supervising authority. Topics include: pupil selection, timetable, syllabus, pupil guidance, relations between teachers and pupils and among pupils, age, academic level, teaching methods, and national cultures. (NQ)
