Bilingual Bicultural Teacher Training Program.
Reeves, Carolyn; And Others
The Bilingual/Bicultural Teacher Training Program at Mississippi State University was developed specifically to train Choctaw preservice teachers, or teacher aides, and other personnel working in Choctaw schools to work effectively in a bilingual/bicultural program. The program is flexible enough, however, so that other language groups can enter the program and receive training that would meet their needs. The major categories of academic preparation included in the curriculum are native language proficiency, linguistics, English as a Second Language (ESL), cultural awareness, bilingual/bicultural education methodology and theory, and assessment and luevaluation procedures in bilingual/bicultural education. The program provides both university and on-site training, and practice teaching experience occurs in the senior year. Further information is presented on specific goals and objectives of the program, personnel involved, the budget, and evaluation methods and results. The entire curriculum is provided in appendices, as well as a list of staff members on the project, and samples of student assignments for various courses. (DS)
