The Development of a Rationale for a Program to Prepare Teachers for Spanish-Speaking Children in the Bilingual-Bicultural Elementary School.
Walsh, Marie Andre
This book sketches the educational history of Mexican Americans and describes bilingual education as one way they can draw on their heritage and teach in bilingual elementary schools. Chapters are devoted to: (1) the profile of depressed educational achievement of the Mexican American and its attendant circumstances; (2) the bilingual school as a possible solution to the problem; (3) identification of the special competencies needed by the teacher in the bilingual-bicultural elementary school; (4) statement of a rationale; (5) the nature of performance-based education and its implications for program design; (6) a response to the basic issues--the St. Edward's Program for the preparation of teachers for Spanish-speaking children in the bilingual-bicultural elementary school in Texas; and (7) conclusions and suggestions for further research. Tabular information, graphs, and a bibliography are included as is an appendix describing a bilingual teacher education conference at St. Edward's University. (EJS)
