Strategies for the Design of Multicultural Curriculum. Bilingual Education Teacher Handbook. Volume I.
Montero, Martha, Ed.
This handbook was developed to aid teachers, teacher aides, paraprofessionals, and teacher trainers. The overview of the readings is both content oriented and structure oriented. Cognitive and affective styles of learning are identified and related to bilingual education; the new research in this area is found to raise significant questions on teaching and learning. The strategies spelled out are not oriented to a specific subject area, but are intended as a guide for technical assistance in the construction of units and curriculum in a variety of subject areas. The overall aim of the handbook is to offer the bilingual educator a greater range of alternatives for planning, developing, and assessing curriculum. The following articles are included: (1) "The Systems-Context Approach to Curriculum Theory in Bilingual Education" (Antonio Simoes, Jr.); (2) "The Statement of Goals and Objectives in Bilingual Education" (Arlene Duelfer); (3) "Teacher Strategies: The Role of Audio-Visual Methodology in Bilingual Education" (Gregoire Chabot); (4) "Structure and Content in the Design of Bilingual-Multicultural Curriculum" (Martha Montero); and (5) "Procedures in Curriculum Evaluation" (Mae Chu-Chang).
