dc.description.abstractThis study comparatively analyzes the curricular documents published by the DEPR for the English and Spanish programs from 2000 until 2010. The documents were analyzed in terms of their similarities and differences, the content of the programs, and the cultural, pedagogical, and political ideologies that they contain. I examined the socio-political and historical context in which the documents were written in order to see how these factors influenced the content of the documents. This project was also accomplished by employing the use of critical discourse analysis, which allowed me to closely read each text in order to find the not so obvious power relationships implied within them. This research can ultimately be defined as a historical research project because I looked at curricular documents that spanned the first decade of the 21st century in order to see how their context shaped them and how they can potentially shape the future.
dc.description.abstractEste estudio analiza comparativamente un conjunto de documentos curriculares publicados por el DEPR para los programas de español e inglés desde el 2000 hasta el 2010. El análisis considera las semejanzas y diferencias entre las guías para cada programa, el contenido de cada uno y las ideologías culturales, pedagógicas y culturales subyacentes. La investigación se enmarca en la teoría crítica y post-estructuralismo lo cual permite apreciar dichos documentos no sólo como guías curriculares, sino también como textos que reflejan las visiones divergentes que afronta el DEPR como la sociedad puertorriqueña respecto al bilingüismo. El estudio emplea la metodología de análisis crítico del discurso para leer atentamente todos los textos a fin de desentrañar las sutiles relaciones de poder que estos articulan. Esta tesis da cuenta de los contextos socio-político e histórico en el que los documentos curriculares fueron generados ella primara década del siglo XXI con el fin de determinar cómo estos factores influyeron en la configuración de los mismos y como podrían influir a el futuro.
