Bilingual Vocational Instructor Training. Information Series No. 201.
This report discusses the background, needs, and major issues in preparing bilingual vocational instructors. Following a brief discussion of the significance of bilingual vocational instructor training, the second section uses statistics in describing potential recipients of bilingual vocational education and discusses the growth of bilingual education activities to serve them. In separate sections legislative developments that have influenced bilingual education are analyzed and bilingual vocational programs currently in progress for which instructors are needed are overviewed. The major section of the report focuses on the training of these instructors through (1) a conceptualization of the role itself (including bilingual, vocational, and instructional aspects), (2) an overview of eight significant training efforts nationwide, and (3) a discussion of issues involved in designing training, programs, such as basic approaches of training programs, competencies needed by the instructors, certification, career objectives, and language skill.
