The Cultural Responsiveness and Dual Language Education Project
Fort, Pilar; Stechuk, Robert
Zero to Three, v29 n1 p24-28 Sep 2008
Early childhood programs are experiencing increasing numbers of children who are learning English as a second language. Staff members struggle with how to best support children and families who are working to preserve their home language and culture while helping their children succeed in educational settings outside the home where English is the predominant language. The authors explore the importance of cultural sensitivity and describe the national Head Start's Cultural Responsiveness and Dual Language Education project aimed at helping Head Start programs improve program practices for dual language learners.
