An Introduction to Bilingual Education. A Manual for Trainers.
This manual was developed for use by the personnel of the New Jersey state department of education to provide technical assistance to local, state, and federal bilingual education and English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) projects in the state. It contains seven training modules, each consisting of a reproducible workshop packet with procedures for the trainer, overhead transparencies, and handouts. The procedures section specifies the materials corresponding to the instructions given. Module topics include: (1) an introduction to bilingual education; (2) identifying limited-English-proficient (LEP) students; (3) assessing the needs of the LEP students; (4) curriculum issues; (5) cross-cultural interaction in the classroom; (6) organizing and implementing programs; and developing successful programs. While the intended audience is state department of education staff, other potential audiences include school district non-instructional staff (administrators and support services), monolingual teachers with LEP students in their classes, staff from education, resource, and training centers, and parents.
