A Comprehensive Bilingual Teacher Training Program [and] Recruitment, Retention and Training of Hispanic Bilingual Teachers.
Two programs at San Diego State University are part of a larger program to train students to become professional bilingual (Spanish-English) teachers. One project provided support to modify five undergraduate courses in math, science, Mexican American culture and history, and child development so they could be taught in Spanish. These courses were chosen specifically to increase teacher trainees' cognitive skills in Spanish, to facilitate teaching in Spanish, and to provide vocabulary and concepts for communicating with parents about their children. The other program provided federal support to guarantee the appropriate number of students for the courses. Negotiation for institutionalization of the five courses has begun. (MSE)
