Migrant Education: An Annotated Bibliography.
Palmer, Barbara C., Comp.
Materials selected for inclusion in the annotated bibliography of 139 publications from 1970 to 1980 give a general understanding of the lives of migrant children, their educational needs and problems, and various attempts made to meet those needs. The bibliography, a valuable tool for researchers and teachers in migrant education, includes books, dissertations, articles, conference papers and government documents divided into five major categories: General Information, Characteristics of Migrant Children, Education of Migrant Children, Education Programs for Migrant Children, and Bibliographies. General Information deals with lifestyle, family unit, social and personal attitudes, and seasonal farm structure. Materials in Characteristics of Migrant Children cover self-concept, motivation, and mobility. Education of Migrant Children includes materials on needs and needs assessment, teaching methods and materials, bilingualism, Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS), and teacher attitudes. Education Programs for Migrant Children includes reports and evaluation, legislation and hearings, descriptions and grants. The final section cites four bibliographies. (LC)
