These elementary school lessons plans in English and Spanish are described to offer assistance in basic study skills on California history/social studies using multilingual, primary source documents, such as photos, maps, newspaper articles, and pictures, and copies of official documents for limited-English-proficient (LEP) students. Four basic instructional components are detailed: English Language Development; Specially Designed Academic Instruction in English; Primary Language Instruction; and Self-Esteem/Positive Self-Image Cross-cultural component. Amount of instruction time for the 5-day lesson varies with student abilities in English. Instructional components cover second language development, primary language instruction, specially designed academic instruction in second language, cross-cultural/self-esteem building, and parent/community involvement.
