Limited English Proficiency Students in Wisconsin: Cultural Background and Educational Needs. Part IV: Hispanic Students (Cuban), Indochinese Students (Cambodian), Native American Students (Chippewa).
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
In an effort to meet the special educational needs of limited English proficient (LEP) language minority groups in Wisconsin, a series of manuals was developed to acquaint teachers, administrators, and the public with the groups, their needs, and the existing programs to meet them. This volume is introduced by a chapter entitled "Historical Landmarks of Bilingual Education in Wisconsin and the United States" and a discussion outline on various types of programs for meeting the needs of limited English proficient students in Wisconsin (both by Frank M. Grittner). The three following chapters focus on each of three minority groups: Cubans, Cambodians, and Chippewa Indians. Each of these chapters contains an essay on the cultural background and educational needs of the group, three supplementary readings, and a list of resources and suggested readings. A final chapter on developing English language skills with LEP students includes two publications of the Center for Applied Linguistics: "Hints for Tutors" and "Continuing English Studies During the Summer--Hints for Sponsors and Teachers of School-Age Children."
