Teaching an Algonkian Language as a Second Language: A Core Program for Kindergarten.
Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development, Toronto (Ontario). Education Div.
Ten units of kindergarten language instruction are presented in English, as a course guide for teachers who are expected to use only an Algonkian language in the classroom. The units, which are thematically titled (e.g. "Let's Eat Together"), cover two to four weeks' teaching time each. Classroom activities involve a variety of realia. Parallel to the list of activities is a guide to the grammatical or lexical principle each activity is intended to rehearse. Several "talking books" with tape scripts, as well as noun and verb charts, are appended as realia for specific units. (JB)
