Bridging Cultures in Educational Materials.
Molina, Huberto
In progressing toward the development of adequate instructional resources for use by the schools to capitalize upon the unique strengths of children with Hispanic-heritage language and cultural assets, Southwest Regional Lab (SWRL) Research and Development has produced or is in the process of producing the following assessment and instruction systems: (1) The Planning Decision System, (2) The Diagnostic Assessment System, (3) The English Language and Concepts Program for Spanish-Speaking Children, (4) The Spanish Language and Concepts Program, and (5) The Spanish Language Reading Program. These programs, components within the framework of the SWRL Personalized Bilingual/Bicultural Education Model, provide the instructional resources for use by schools to insure that youngsters acquire proficiency in basic Spanish and English language skills requisite to success in Spanish/English elementary school instruction. Specific references are made indicating how cultural considerations are incorporated into the educational materials. (Author/AMH)
