Northern Native Languages Project. Final Report.
Burnaby, Barbara; And Others
The Northern Native Language Project was constituted in June 1979 to produce a report which would present information on the present situation regarding language education schools in the project area of Ontario (James Bay, Nakina, and Sioux Lookout) and to make recommendations concerning appropriate action for the future. The introduction of the report describes activities of the Project, provides a map of the project area, and outlines the project's implementation. Part I addresses general observations made from community visits, potential programs, basic strategies and questions regarding language for communities to consider. Part II looks at English medium courses and English as a Second Language (ESL) programs. General observations pertaining to Native language arts programs for English medium schools is presented in Part III. Part IV is concerned with using the Native language as a medium of teaching courses. Part V describes present qualifications of teaching personnel in northern schools and surveys what kind of training is available. Appendices containing ESL Programs and activity books, a summary of Northern Native Language survey, Native language instructor's pay grid, and programs for teachers of Native language enrichment and literacy conclude the document.
