Texas Education Agency, Austin. Office of International and Bilingual Education.
Bilingual legislation in Texas requires that the Texas Education Agency provide for Bilingual Education Teacher Training Institutes. This manual was developed to serve as a guide for the implementation of such institutes throughout the state. Each institute meets six hours a day for five days. A detailed outline is given in this manuel for each of the five days. The topics to be discussed on each day are as follows: Day One: bilingual materials (Part I), parental and community involvement, and evaluation; Day Two: instruction in the child's first language; Day Three: second language methods and techniques; Day Four: culture and teacher pupil interaction; and Day Five: classroom management and materials (Part II). Appendix A contains samples of all of the participant handouts, such as articles on bilingualism by William Mackey, Rudolph Troike and Marguerite Smith; a materials list; sample lessons; evaluation forms; information on Spanish orthography; classroom terminology; etc. Appendix B consists of instructor references, such as the text of the Bilingual Education Act, information on instruction in the child's first language, the rationale for the culture component, and copies of transparencies regarding materials, self-contained classrooms, teamed classrooms, etc. (CFM)
