Head Start is more ethnically, culturally, and linguistically diverse than ever before. The Office of Head Start (OHS) is dedicated to providing all Head Start programs with resources to meet the diverse needs of their communities. The Resource Catalogue is designed to provide programs with evidence-based materials, research, promising practices, and other resources to help develop culturally and linguistically responsive systems and services. The catalogue includes books, articles, videos, and other useful resources—many of which are available free of charge.
Volume Two of the Resource Catalogue provides information to support Head Start programs working to preserve, revitalize, and/or reclaim heritage languages, such as American Indian, Native Alaskan, Pacific Islanders, and other groups aiming to preserve a heritage language. Catalogue entries showcase resources and practices on topics such as early childhood language nests, the use of technology in language learning, immersion preschool programs, and culturally responsive curricula.
