Esto es absolutamente ridiculo, como si fuera de "The Onion". Muestra el nivel de intolerancia de algunas personas. Este hombre literalmente ve a un grupo de chicos de 5 años como una amenaza a su idea de como debe ser el pais. Ojalá que no haya dañado demasiado el autoestima de los niños hispanohablantes que interrumpió.
Callé Hewett's comment, May 4, 1:58 AM
Creo que este es horible. Es muy mal influenciar los niños en este modo.
No es justo de él para forzar sus opniones en los jovenes. Creo que es desgraciado que unos personas en este mundo sigo pensando de esa manera.

EXCHANGE: Carbondale students immersed in Spanish | Spanish in the United States | Scoop.it
Only five minutes remained before the end of the day in Sara Diaz's class at Parrish School in Carbondale, and after hours of learning, mental fatigue had started setting in among the students.

Pienso que es interesante que estos profesores ven el Spanglish como un tipo del progreso en cuanto a los estudiantes en los programas bilingues en los Estados Unidos. Hay mucha gente que tiene actidudes negativas hacia el uso del Spanglish y piensa que es por parte de una falta de educacion. Estas personas piensan que la mezlca de las dos lenguas es parte de aprender las lenguas y ser parte de la cultura global.
William Jacob Atkins's comment, April 27, 11:30 AM
Esa programa debe ser el modelo para cada programa de educación bilingüe en los EE.UU. Este tipo de programa permite el mantenimiento de la lengua materna pero también enfoque en la progresión en inglés cada año. Y, lo más importante, esta manera de enseñar es apoyada por los estudios modernos que han investigado la manera mejora de enseñar una lengua segunda.
Kelsey Landrum's comment, May 6, 2:40 AM
Pienso que esa programa de inmersión es un buen ejemplo de una programa en el sistema educativa en los Estados Unidos. Es importante que los estudiantes pueden usar su idioma materna a lo mismo tiempo. Pienso que es bueno que esa programa dura mucho tiempo.

Me sorprende mucho que estos estandares son efectivos en las clases de español porque son específicamente diseñados para el estudiante "ideal". Por otro lado, tienen el objetivo de construir la habilidad para la resolución de problemas en los niños, algo que es muy importante para aprender una lengua.
