Site Visitation: Choctaw Language Teaching Program, Mississippi Choctaw Agency Schools, Philadelphia, Mississippi, August 7, 8, 1975. A Report. Research and Evaluation Report Series No. 23-C.
A site visitation of the Bilingual Program at Choctaw Agency indicated that the program would be implemented during the 1975-76 school year. The program will involve teaching the reading and writing of the Choctaw language combined with teaching English as a Second Language (ESL). A structured approach will be used in teaching ESL to the Choctaw Indian students beginning with kindergarten and continuing through third grade. The strategy for teaching the Choctaw language will adhere to a technique called "Parity Bilingual Program". This technique utilizes the symbolic approach. Focusing on K-1, the methodology is to involve learning one symbol and one sound together. Other symbols and sounds will be developed from the original symbol. The acquisition of skills from this method would then be transferred to that of reading and writing the English language. This report presents a sample lesson plan. (NQ)
