The Bilingual Education Movement: Essays in Progress. Studies in Language and Linguistics, 1977-78.
Mackey, William F.; And Others
This collection of six essays discusses the topics of language diversity, ethnic problems, and a worldwide drive for bilingual education. The main thrust in the essays is toward a global view of these phenomena, particularly bilingual instruction, with special attention given to the American southwest. Both similar and dissimilar patterns emerging throughout the world are examined and prospects for success in the bilingual education movement are discussed. Part 1, Language and Educational Factors, includes chapters on: (1) the Bilingual Education Movement: Patterns and Prospects; (2) Research Priorities in Bilingual Education in the United States: Challenges for the Present and Future; and (3) Evaluating Bilingual Education Programs: Critical Variables. Part 2, Social and Political Dimensions, includes chapters on: (4) Language and Culture in the Global Community; (5) Bilingual Education as an Ecology; and (6) The Revolt of the Ethnics. (Author/NCR)
