History of Bilingual Education in the United States
Your principal has charged you with providing a workshop on the history of bilingual education to inform faculty how legislative policy has a significant impact on the instructional programs we find in our schools.
For this assignment, you will examine and share with your fellow colleagues at least 10 events that have influenced and even changed bilingual education. Reread the SECTION in Chapter 5 of your textbook entitled ?A Historical Perspective.? Also review the following website that provides a great overview of some of the most influential pieces of legislation regarding bilingual education in the United States:
Legislation related to bilingual education (http://www.umich.edu/~ac213/student_projects05/be/legislation.html)
Create a 12 slide PPT presentation (does not include slides for title and references) for your workshop to show how bilingual education has changed. You must either use the notes section on each slide in your PPT to provide a transcript of what you will say about each slide . Your workshop presentation must include following:
A title slide that includes the name of your workshop, your name, the course number, the date, and your instructor?s name.
At least 10 events with at least three policies and three law cases. They should be presented in chronological order.
A visual and a caption describing its significance in your own words for each event.
List the event on the slide
Include a visual that best represents the event on the slide
Describe in your OWN words what the event was about and WHY it was significant for bilingual education. Comment on how the event impacted bilingual education by examining its negative or positive consequence on bilingual education; how did it influence the educational programs designed for ELLs?
Explain the goals of the CCSS and how are English learners included in this initiative? How must ELLs be better supported to achieve these standards? Provide at least two ways they must be supported. Here is an additional link to support your understanding of the CCSS and what it means for ELLs:
