[MLE] Book on "Heritage Language Playschools"

Dear multilingual education friends,

Using the mother tongue in the anganwadis or preschools is not only done in Orissa, but also in Malaysia. Dr Karla Smith wrote a book on it titled "Heritage Language Playschools for Indigenous Minorities".

The MTB-MLE website reports:
This book contains administrative and curriculum materials that can be used to establish and operate playschool programmes for indigenous communities. Carefully sequenced steps, covering pre-planning to evaluation, outline the process of setting up a local playschool with the aid of community involvement. The content covers pre-reading, pre-writing and readiness skills and provides an abundance of practical advice, forms and ideas based on sound educational theory.
The whole book can be downloaded for free from the above link.

Thank you Pam Mackenzie, for passing on the tip.

Regards,

Karsten

  1. Comment from the author of the book:
    There is a 'bundle' of supplemental material available to go along with the Heritage Language Playschools book. It include samples and worksheets that are practical and very useful in any pre-school program. This 'bundle' is about 20 megabytes in size and can be downloaded from this link:
