Suggested Curriculum Guidelines for an Effective Bilingual Program, 1973-1974. Health, Science, Social Studies, New Mexico History, English as a Second Language, Multiculturalism. Fourth Grade, Level 4.
Artesia Public Schools, NM.
This volume presents suggested curriculum guidelines for an effective bilingual program, with specific focus on instruction in health, science, social studies, New Mexico history, English as a second language, and multiculturalism, at the fourth grade level. The philosophy of the program views bilingual education as a vehicle and pedagogical tool to be used to better prepare all children to function in society. The point of departure for formal learning and formal training is the linguistic and cultural heritage that the child brings to the school situation. The Learning Loop method is used, involving five basic steps in the presentation of all subject matter: (1) diagnosis--recognizing the child's needs; (2) prescription--outlining the child's learning activities; (3) commitment--willingness of the child to learn; (4) treatment--teaching time spent; (5) evaluation of the child's accomplishments. The volume is divided into six major sections, each dealing with one of the subject areas and itself divided into smaller units. The guidelines for each unit are presented in terms of concept or objective to be taught, content, resources and materials, and evaluation. Criterion-referenced inventory cards for student evaluation accompany the text. (CLK)
