      The following from the Nur University Newsletter
      http://www.nur.edu/nins/wp_nins0101.html may be of interest. Although it
      doesn't mention it until the end, the approach is bilingual Quechua/Spanish.

      Andean Center for Teacher Training:
      Improving Reading in Primary Schools

      The program trains teachers in methods that improve reading comprehension
      After 18 months of operation, Nur's Andean Center of Excellence for Teacher
      Training (CETT) is making a visible difference in the way children are learning
      to read. Nur's teacher training Center, supported by the US Government and
      private contributions, is one of three Latin American Centers established under
      a Summit of the Americas Initiative in April, 2001.

      The program trains teachers in methods that improve reading comprehension. It is
      based on the concept of nurturing meaningful communication for children, not
      only in the classroom, but in their lives.

      The growing impact of the CETT project has been covered widely by Bolivian
      newspapers. The articles focus on the resulting enthusiasm of children who
      become more eager to read and learn after receiving instruction in the
      interactive reading methods promoted by the program.

      The program's goal is to provide intensive teacher training for 6,000 primary
      school teachers who will reach 180,000 children in Bolivia. Its work is based
      on the latest research findings identifying the most effective ways of teaching
      reading. Through the documentation of its work, Nur's Center is advancing the
      field of bilingual intercultural education -- in this case, Quechua and
      Spanish.
