InterAmerica Research Associates, Rosslyn, VA.; National Clearinghouse for Bilingual Education, Rosslyn, VA.
An overview of classroom and administrative issues related to the education of language minority students in the United States is presented in two sections. The section on classroom issues focuses on four topics: teaching methodologies for English as a second language; the features, titles, and sources of language proficiency assessment instruments; principles, techniques, and policies for improving mathematics skills in this group; and native and English language literacy for language minority students. The section on administrative issues discusses: a recent evaluative study of the Federal American Indian/Alaskan Native program; a transition program for refugee children; a study by several State Boards of education to help states strengthen their capacity-building for educational services to limited-English-speaking children; elements of effective counseling programs; and the Federal Education for All Handicapped Act of 1975. Each subsection contains a list of resources, and a list of resource organizations is appended. (MSE)
