Carin, Arthur A.
This evaluation covers the Spanish, Italian, and Haitian bilingual components funded through Title VII in Brooklyn, New York's Community School District 32. The three programs discussed are: (1) S.U.B.E. (Success under Spanish Bilingual Education), for grades K-6; (2) AVANTI (an approach to Italian bilingual education), for grades 1-9; and (3) HABILE (Haitian Bilingual Education), comprising both Creole and French as well as English for grades 1-8. Each program is described in terms of objectives, implementation, staffing, student participation, staff development, parent involvement, school and community activities, and evaluation procedures. Student achievement data, in the form of pre/post program test scores in reading and mathematics, are presented. It is recommended that all three programs be continued, although criticism and suggestions for improvement are noted. Consultants' resumes, evaluation forms, and observation guides are appended to the report. (GC)
