Literacy Exposure and Experience Program (LEEP): an internship in minority language education

Author  Foerster, Elizabeth Braun
Abstract 

Minority language speakers need opportunities that enable them to develop their own capacity as educators. The Linguistics Institute Training Unit of Payap University in Thailand sponsors one such opportunity, a 9-month literacy internship program. This is one case of how that program enabled a young woman from a minority language group to learn about and receive training for mother tongue literacy work and do a practicum among her own language group.
