dc.description.abstractThe teaching of English as a Second Language (ESL) in the Kindergarten classroom in Puerto Rico public schools has been a controversial topic to most boricuas (term used to name the native Puerto Rican) for over fifteen years. Though the teaching of English at this level has never been mandatory by the Department of Education,many teachers have been delivering ESL lessons at this level for many years without a properly identified curriculum to suit the needs of the kindergarten student. The proposed curriculum is an innovative approach concerning the teaching of ESL through an arts- based medium to aid fellow educators in preparing their teaching lessons. The designed curriculum intends to serve as a model that can be incorporated or adapted in any English classroom in Puerto Rico or around the world by any English teacher to suit the specific needs of every educational community.
dc.description.abstractLa enseñanza del Inglés como Segundo idioma (ESL) en el salón de Kindergarten de las escuela públicas de Puerto Rico ha sido un tema controversial por más de quince años para la gran mayoría de los boricuas. Aun cuando la enseñanza del Inglés en este nivel nunca ha sido mandatario por el Departamento de Educación de Puerto Rico, muchos educadores han estado impartiendo sus lecciones de ESL a este nivel durante muchos años sin un currículo propiamente identificado que atienda las necesidades del estudiante de Kindergarten. El currículo propuesto es una estrategia innovadora la cual concierne la enseñanza de ESL a través de las artes. El diseño curricular pretende servir como un modelo el cual pueda ser incorporado u adaptado en cualquier aula de Inglés de Kindergarten en las escuelas públicas de Puerto Rico u alrededor del mundo para satisfacer las necesidades específicas de cada comunidad escolar.
