New Approaches to Bilingual Bicultural Education, No. 6: Developing Cognitive Flexibility.
Ramirez, Manuel, III; And Others
This teaching manual is the sixth in a series of seven (accompanied by a manual of self-assessment units) that have been designed for use in bilingual/bicultural programs. The components of the series may be used either individually or together. The subject discussed in this manual is a frontier area of cultural democracy that has far-reaching implications: promoting "bicognitive" development, that is, addressing education to children's potentials for cognitive flexibility as well as linguistic and cultural flexibility. Bicognitive development is held to be an asset for all children, but a necessity for culturally different children in the U.S. public school system, especially Mexican-American children. (Author/AM)
