Report of the Bilingual-Bicultural Workshop, August 20-23, 1974 Sponsored by the Center for International Education.
Massachusetts State Coll. System, Buzzards Bay. Center for International Education.
The purpose of this conference was to produce a set of recommendations and suggestions that could be available to teacher training institutions, state education agencies, and other private and public institutions concerned with the study of ethnicity and bilingualism/biculturalism. Five major topics that form the basis for the report are training programs, training programs (related services and aides), overlapping programs, ethnicity, and supply and demand. Recommendations are brought together under 12 headings. Brief summaries of the rationales leading to and suggestions for implementation of each recommendation are included under each recommendation. Among the major headings dealt with are preparation of American teachers for teaching services in a foreign country, preparation of teachers trained abroad for teaching in the U.S., preparation of bilingual teachers to teach adult basic education programs, upgrading of certification requirements and techniques, training for persons in related services in second language experience, the expansion of present bilingual programs, and research on bilingual education.
