B.A.B.E.L. Career Lattice Program.
The Bay Area Bilingual Education League (BABEL) is a five-district consortium joining forces to confront the need for bilingual education. It encompasses pre-kindergarten through high school. The program incorporates teacher and instructional assistant training ranging from teaching techniques and methodology to cultural awareness. All of the teaching participants are bilingual; either Spanish/English or Chinese/English. The Career Lattice Program provides career opportunities for bilingual individuals with zero years of college and extends to a highly sophisticated, skilled doctorate program. This report details the recruitment and selection of personnel; the career lattice program; college training/education of participants; and auxiliary training in areas such as counseling, audit/evaluation; methodology; inservice training, teacher supervision, and a bilingual Ph.D. program.
