Interpretive Studies on Bilingual Education. Final Report.
This project, carried out in 1968-1969, undertook as its main purposes (1) to review the research that has been conducted on bilingual education; (2) to obtain the recommendations on bilingual education from those persons who have been actively engaged in working with this problem; (3) to conduct on-site visitations to see at first hand programs of interest, programs with potential for achieving inter-group reactivity, and (4) to draw from the study implications for educational practice and administration, and research in the area of bilingual-bicultural education. The first main section of this report summarizes the purposes of the bilingual program, growth and development, language acquisition and learning, programs and methodology, projects, and tests and measurements. The second main section describes goals, the bilingual education program, the teacher and bilingual education, materials, teacher methodology, evaluation, and school and community relations. The final section deals with the same topics in terms of implications for research. An annotated bibliography on bilingualism is followed by a selected bibliography and a listing of projects and on-going programs in bilingual education. (AMM)
