Bilingual Education Teacher Handbook is a two volume collection of articles developed by bilingual staff at the Boston University Training and Resource Center of the National Network of Centers for Bilingual Education. The goal of this project is to "develop teacher awareness of those areas that underlie bilingual education, namely, (a) the role of the systems-context approach; (b) the role in curriculum design of goals and objectives; (c) the development of pedagogical skills in bilingual education." (p. 3) The articles were not intended to be neatly packaged curriculum kits, but rather to provide the fundamental basis for developing and evaluating bilingual programs. Their major focus is on the junior high school and adult school population. The successful use of these volumes as handbooks is dependent upon the devoted energies of teachers, community members, parents, and administrators who are totally involved in bilingual education.
