Bilingual Education: A Resource Guide for Educators and Administrators.
Shockey, Karen
The guide is designed to introduce elementary and secondary school teachers and administrators to government documents and their use, provide background on the issue of bilingual education, and list relevant documents and publications as a basis for constructing educational programs for limited English-proficient students. The first major section offers an introduction to government sources of information, explaining the depository library system, methods of locating information, and the Government Printing Office (GPO). The second section defines bilingual education and chronicles its legislative history in the United States. Section 3 is a listing of resources, not all government publications, in four categories including: (1) sources for background readings; (2) sources of facts and data; (3) background and primary sources concerning federal legislation; and (4) background and primary sources concerning New York State legislation. A list of acronyms and abbreviations relating to bilingual education and legislation is included. Appended materials include: a list of public agency names and addresses; descriptions of databases, indexes, and abstracts; a list of journals of interest; notes on the ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center) Document Reproduction Service and price codes; a sample document resume from "Resources in Education"; notes on ordering from "Resources in Education"; and a sample entry from GPO's "Monthly Catalog."
