Instructional Models for Spanish/English Bilingual Classrooms. Bilingual Education Resource Series.
Hewlett-Gomez, Michele; Rawson, Anne
The guide outlines Washington State's programmatic approach to teaching native Spanish-speaking limited-English-proficient students in bilingual education programs. It charts the components of the bilingual instructional models used in the classrooms, and then explains or defines each component. The components include: methods for determining the individual student's linguistic and academic needs (including language and conceptual development); classification of language dominance; curriculum components (language development, content areas with a multicultural focus, and self-concept); classroom models (self-contained, team-taught, resource teacher, open classroom, and magnet center); staffing patterns; instructional techniques (alternate language approach, concurrent, language grouping, and preview/review); and specific instructional materials (mainstream monolingual curriculum materials, bilingual/multicultural parallel materials, and equipment). A list of publishers, a glossary, and a list of suggested readings are included. (MSE)
