The Somerton Story: Part 5. Bilingual Education in Conjunction with a Migrant-Child Demonstration Project.
Arizona State Dept. of Public Instruction, Phoenix. Div. of Migrant Child Education.
The addition of a bilingual component enhanced the progress of "The Somerton Story." A Prominent part of the instructional program in migrant education, this component was initiated with 60 kindergarten children during the 1970-71 school year. These 60 children remained in the program as a grade was added each following year. Written by the teachers presently in the bilingual program, this report discusses what is being done in Somerton today. The kindergarten through fourth grade teachers discuss: (1) the value of bilingual/bicultural education; (2) advantages and disadvantages for their respective grade levels; (3) what they do that might be different from regular classrooms; (4) special programs and features; and (5) recommendations that they would have for others considering a similar program.
