An Annotated Bibliographical Guide to the Literature on Bilingualism and Multicultural Education.
Caliguri, Joseph P.; And Others
Abstracts on bilingual and multicultural education, covering 1963 to 1980 and retrieved from three data bases (Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC), America History and Life, Sociological Abstracts) comprise this annotated bibliography, divided into a guide and four sections: Bilingualism and Elementary Education, Multiculturalism and Secondary Education, Multiculturalism and Higher Education, and Related Topics. Developed to meet the 1979 National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) standard requiring multicultural education in teaching programs, these references will direct researchers and educators to materials for developing programs for an estimated 3.6 million students with limited English skills. Predominant languages noted are Hispanic/Puerto Rican, Black American, Alaskan, Native American, French, and Asian. Multicultural topics include staff development, teacher education, and legislation. Predominant information relates to research evaluation of linguistics, testing, handicapped, instructional materials, programs, and experimental models. Abstracts consist of 298 from ERIC (1975 to 1980) for elementary, secondary, and higher education; 78 from America History and Life (1963 to 1980); and 114 from Sociological Abstracts (1963 to 1980). Also included is a frequency count of literature types and content; a listing of number of documents by languages and ethnic groups, according to institutional levels; and descriptions of bilingual program evaluation resources.
