Intervention Strategies: A Multicultural Approach.
Cheng, Li-Rong Lilly
Topics in Language Disorders, v9 n3 p84-91 Jun 1989
Intervention planning for limited-English-proficient students calls for an experiential approach which compares and contrasts the students' home culture with mainstream United States culture. Methods are presented for incorporating student culture in intervention activities (building a multicultural calendar, studying folk tales) and for facilitating transition into the mainstream culture (role-playing, discussing culturally unique items.)
