Will the LEP Train Reach Its Destination? Designing the IHE Teacher Training Program for Specific LEP Student Instructional Needs.
Steffens, John E.
This paper discusses designing an individual higher education (IHE) teacher training program that focuses on the instructional needs of limited-English-proficient students (LEP). The paper seeks to accomplish the following: excite individuals to want to participate in building a new paradigm in teacher training for teachers of all LEP students; provide background information and a preliminary knowledge base to substantiate a call for action; relate the need to pay attention to LEP students in educational reform and restructuring activities, particularly the AMERICA 2000 strategies; and describe some steps that need to be taken on how to accomplish the tasks outlined. Two responses to the paper, one by Virginia Collier and one by Rosita G. Galang, are appended. (VWL)
