On Keeping Lines of Communication with Indochinese Children Open. Elementary Education Series, No. 1. Indochinese Refugee Education Guides.
Center for Applied Linguistics, Arlington, VA.
This guide addresses itself to elementary school teachers who may have Vietnamese and/or Cambodian children in their classes. The guide gives pointers on how to establish and maintain communication with the children and emphasizes the important role the teacher will play in the children's happiness and success in this country. The following suggestions are made: (1) use the services of a Vietnamese-speaking teacher or teacher aide, if one is present in the school; (2) use peer group instruction in the child's language wherever possible; (3) both English-speaking teachers and students in class would do well to learn a little Vietnamese or Cambodian; (4) use simple and basic English in talking with the child; and (5) teach him English as a second language as efficiently and as rapidly as possible. An annotated bibliography follows the text. (Author/TL)
