Ann Sevi Ak Tout Entelijans Elev Ayisyen Yo: Yon Seri leson matematik ak syans pou elev edikasyon jeneral ak elev edikasyon espesyal (4em-8em ane) = Tapping into Haitian Students' Multiple Intelligences: A Collection of Mathematics and Science Lessons for General and Special Education Students (Grades 4-8).
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Bilingual Education.
The materials consist of five mathematics and five science lessons for Haitian bilingual students in general and special education in grades 4-8. A thematic/interdisciplinary approach was used in designing the lesson, incorporating theory of multiple intelligences, Bloom's taxonomy of educational objectives, and other learning theories. The lessons are based on two major themes: games Haitian children play, and the environment. A science lesson and a mathematics lesson are presented for each grade level. In each lesson, the basic text, all exercises, and a glossary are in Haitian Creole and a linguistic summary in English is provided for the teacher, suggesting sample student interactions and teacher-guided responses for each of three levels (beginning, intermediate, advanced).
