Basic Skills Learning Centers Project. Annual Report for the Period October 1, 1978 - September 30, 1979.
Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
Program implementation is stressed in this final report of a three-year Basic Skills Learning Centers (BSLC) Project designed (1) to improve basic skills in reading, math, and reasoning and (2) to serve a target population of Spanish-speaking children from nonurban schools in five southwestern states. Section I is the annual report for 1978-79 and summarizes the year's activities, with emphasis on field services, staff training, and communication with participating schools. Covering the entire period from 1976-1979, Section II includes an overview of the project, its goals and target audience; a description of the programs and materials and their method of implementation; and a summary of the major strategies used to help the schools implement the programs. Numbers of students participating and student characteristics are included in this section. Use of bilingual instructional staff is discussed, and some problems with student record keeping procedures and delivery of services to rural school districts are pointed out. Section III covers the three years of the Louisiana Component of the project, which served English-speaking children from 45 schools in 6 parishes. Appendices contain correspondence documenting the activities of the 1978-79 fourth quarter and tabular material showing pupil progress and projected use of BSLC materials in 1979-80, when federal support for the program will not be available.
