The Culver City Spanish Immersion Program and Advocates for Language Learning Handbook.
Rubenstein, Dorothy J., Ed.
The handbook for the Culver City (California) Spanish Immersion Program and the Advocates for Language Learning (ALL) describes the program and organization. ALL is a nonprofit association of parents, teachers, and other individuals interested in promoting and enhancing the study of second languages. The organization's goals and local and national activities are described, including a fifth- and sixth-grade student exchange program in Mexico. The Culver City Spanish Immersion program is an elementary school program based in one school. A description provides information on program goals; enrollment; location; transportation; child care options; extracurricular activities; opportunities for observation; instruction and curriculum at each grade level; student evaluation and progress reporting; discipline policy; and the immersion program community, including staff, parents, and ALL. Two essays on immersion are presented, one answering questions about immersion education frequently asked by parents, and the other outlining the fifth and sixth grade student exchange program and the annual ALL convention. An ALL membership application form is appended. (MSE)
