Bilingual Bicultural Curriculum for Language Arts, Grade Four. Connecticut Migratory Children's Program.
Beauchamp, Laura; Butler, David L.
This is one of a series of curriculum guides designed to assist bilingual teachers in efforts to provide a coordinated program of studies for students in the Connecticut Migratory Children's Program and for any other students whose native language is Spanish. It is felt that an effort should be made to discover the skill level at which a child is functioning, to choose materials from curriculum guides at that skill level, and to move to more difficult materials when the child is ready. Skills are suggested at given grade levels to provide a logical sequence of skill development. The overall focus of the curriculum guides in the series is on Puerto Rican history and culture. The present guide is for the bilingual-bicultural curriculum for language arts at the fourth grade level, and is divided into seven units: (1) Connecticut, (2) Puerto Rico, (3) Latin America, (4) Europe, (5) Asia, (6) The Eskimo, and (7) The American Indian. Each unit is divided into skills, with activities prescribed for each skill. Each skill is accompanied by a reading selection. (CLK)
