ESEA Title VII, Program for Achievements in Chinese, English and Spanish (PACES). Interim Report, 1978-79.
Fox, Louise W.; Fox, David J.
The primary goals of the Program for Achievement in Chinese and English and Spanish was to provide for the special linguistic, academic, and cultural needs of Chinese and Spanish speaking students in grades seven, eight, and nine. Program activities capitalized on students' native language proficiency while they developed competency in English. Program components included instructional activities, staff development, parent and community involvement, and curriculum and resource center development. Evaluation of the program was completed through the use of pre/posttest student achievement data and questionnaires completed by teachers. Questionnaire findings indicated that the staff development component was successful. Achievement test data indicated inconsistent attainment of goals in both Chinese-English and Spanish-English components across all grade levels. Recommendations for future program implementation are included. (MK)
