AbstractThe American educational system is in need of effectively examining its curriculum in terms of bilingual education. The existing models for developing bilingual educational programs have been divergent. This study uses T. Frank Saunders' theory of model construction as an informing hypothesis to develop a model for examining and comparing bilingual education models, and for the development of programmatic application. The development of this model considered model integration issues. The basic intent was to conceptualize a model where the categories and the variables of the model were operationalized. The ideas proposed in this study account for the evaluation and the formation of a model, for the placement of operational objectives for bilingual education, and for future direction of bilingual education in American curriculum planning.
