Bay Area Bilingual Education League. Methodologies Institute.
Molina de Rosenberg, Francyn
The Bay Area Bilingual Education League (BABEL) is a merger of four districts concerned with bilingual education for Spanish-speaking, Chinese-speaking and English-speaking children. BABEL sponsored a Bilingual Methodologies Institute, designed to meet the needs of its teachers and teacher assistants in the classroom. The institute covered all aspects of bilingual education from individual subject matter to class management. The institute consisted of three major components: the elementary school, the secondary school, both of which focused on English/Spanish bilingual instruction, and a Chinese institute which focused on Chinese/English bilingual instruction. This booklet is a day-by-day summary of the activities of the institute. A brief evaluation of the institute as a whole is provided. A narrative description of the Chinese institute is also given, followed by: (1) a list of the workshops and consultants for that institute, (2) a list of participants in all the components, and (3) a brief description of the BABEL Auxiliary Bilingual Training Program for eleven bilingual/bicultural interns in a Master's program in audit and evaluation.
