This guide on training bilingual education teachers focuses on parent participation in school activities. The guide addresses three groups of people: paraprofessionals and non-graduate students, bilingual teachers, and graduate students. Two units are presented, one dealing with the important influence parents have on their child's language acquisition, and the other dealing with how parents can be used by teachers as valuable resources. The first unit emphasizes that the bilingual teacher should be aware of: (1) the language the students speak at home; (2) language acquisition research; (3) attitudes of Mexican Americans towards Spanish; (4) language patterns in bilingual children's speech; (5) the importance of parents teaching such values as loyalty, obedience, and respect; (6) the different cultures in a multicultural classroom; and (7) avoiding stereotypes of minority children. The second unit discusses how the teacher can involve parents by: (1) participating in meetings with parents of bilingual children, (2) visiting the families to inform the parents of their child's progress, (3) facilitating interaction between parents and school personnel, (4) using parents as resources to help create a positive self-image for Mexican American children, and (5) encouraging group spirit among parents to reinforce the rich cultural heritage of Mexican Americans. Each unit includes objectives, questions, assigned reading, student activities, and a bibliography. (NCR)
