IMPROVING LANGUAGE ARTS OF BILINGUALS THROUGH AUDIOVISUAL MEANS.
CLINE, MARION, JR.
THIS IS AN EVALUATION OF THE USE OF AUDIOVISUAL AIDS WITH BILINGUAL SPANISH-SPEAKING CHILDREN OF NORTHERN NEW MEXICO. THE SCHOOL YEARS OF 1959-61 WERE SPENT IN SEEKING THE MEANS OF OVERCOMING THE LANGUAGE HANDICAPS OF BILINGUAL PUPILS BY THE USE OF AUDIOVISUAL AIDS. TWELVE GROUPS WERE USED, 6 EXPERIMENTAL AND 6 CONTROL GROUPS. DURING 1/2 HOUR A DAY FOR A TOTAL OF 2 1/2 HOURS PER WEEK, THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUPS WERE TAUGHT WITH ALL AVAILABLE VISUAL AND AUDIO AIDS SUITED TO THE FOURTH-GRADE CURRICULUM. THE CONTROL GROUPS WERE INSTRUCTED WITHOUT SPECIAL ATTENTION TO AUDIOVISUALS. TEACHERS SELECTED FOR THE PROJECT HAD PARTICIPATED IN A SUMMER WORKSHOP ON AUDIOVISUAL AIDS. ACHIEVEMENT TESTS AND ORAL READING TESTS WERE ADMINISTERED TO BOTH GROUPS. ON MOST OF THE VARIABLES, THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUPS ACHIEVED SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER RESULTS THAN THE CONTROL GROUPS. A NUMBER OF SIGNIFICANT RECOMMENDATIONS FOR RESEARCH ON PREPARATION AND USE OF AUDIOVISUAL AIDS ARE INCLUDED IN THE REPORT. (JC)
