Multi-Language School: A Teacher's Guide.
Gradisnik, Anthony; Anderson, Helena
This teacher's guide to the Milwaukee Public Schools' Multi-Language School (foreign language immersion program) begins with a brief general description and rationale of the program. Previous experience with immersion programs at other schools is cited to answer the question, "What effect does a second language 'immersion' program have on children?" A page each is devoted to describing program goals and information about pupil enrollment. Thirty-one specific classroom procedures are suggested to the teacher. Sample classroom routines are offered for the lower, middle, and upper primary levels, and additional specific grade level procedures are suggested. Curriculum resources are briefly outlined. A table is included that indicates the approximate number of minutes weekly that are to be devoted to the second language as compared to English. Staff characteristics and expectations are briefly stated, and a detailed job description for a resource teacher is included. The guide concludes with a short statement on parent and community involvement, a sample informational form, guidelines for evaluation, and recommended professional reading for the teacher. (JB)
