Instructional Design for Teacher Training in Bilingual Education.
Trueba, Henry T.; And Others
This paper constitutes an effort to design an undergraduate certification program in bilingual education. The content and orientation of eight courses forming the instructional core of a teacher training program in bilingual education are discussed. The courses are divided into three groups, the first one concerning the foundations of bilingual/bicultural education. The second group addresses the cultural, historical and socioeconomic aspects of bilingual education. Teaching methodology is focused on in the third group. The prerequisites, objectives, content, format, and requirements of each course are outlined. The interdisciplinary courses that would be required for certification are also discussed. They range from linguistic courses (including psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, and language acquisition) to courses in sociology, anthropology, educational psychology, and foreign languages. The objectives and organizational design of the required field-based experience are described, as well as the evaluation of the training program by the students. Sample program evaluation questionnaires and forms for performance appraisal of instructional assistants are included. (CLK)
