Quezada, Maria S.; Wiley, Terrence G.; Ramirez, J. David
Educational Leadership, v57 n4 p57-61 Dec 1999-Jan 2000
In 1998, passage of Proposition 227 virtually eliminated bilingual education programs and called for instruction overwhelmingly in English. However, diverse student populations require diverse instructional approaches. Standards-based reform aids only students who can fully understand and assimilate high academic content. Constructivists value building on students' prior knowledge. (Contains 18 references.) (MLH)
