P.S. 332 Title VII Program, District Model for Bilingual Development. Final Evaluation Report, 1978-79.
This is an evaluation of a Title VII bilingual education program carried out for Spanish and English dominant children in grades K-6 at Public School 332 in Brooklyn, New York. The aims of the program were to develop students' abilities to speak, read, and write English, to enable Spanish speaking children to interact with their English speaking peers, and to provide for bilingual staff development, parent and community involvement, and the development of instructional materials. In addition, goals were set for student achievement in the areas of mathematics, social studies, science, and cross cultural understanding. Staffing, instructional practices, and in-class and extracurricular activities are described in this report. Also presented are pre and post test scores, indicating achievement in reading, vocabulary, comprehension, mathematics, history, and culture for students at most grade levels. Brief recommendations are offered in the areas of classroom assignment of Spanish speaking pupils, outreach to surrounding schools, the incorporation of music and dancing into the curriculum, and the teaching of test-taking skills to participating students.
