Mexican American Education Research Program: Solutions in Communications. Report to the California State Department of Education.

The report describes an evaluational study of a series of 8 television programs for in-service training of teachers of Mexican-American children with language difficulties. Three groups of teachers (2 experimental groups and 1 control group) and their classroom students participated in the evaluation. One of the experimental groups was given discussion leadership after each television lesson and the other group viewed the lesson without discussion. The control group did not view the television series. Conclusions were that teachers in both experimental groups scored significantly higher than the control group on a written test about language difficulties of Mexican-American children. However, differences in student performance between the 3 groups were not significant. The teacher test corresponding to the television series and a list of related materials are appended. (TL)
