Bilingual Mini School, Title VII ESEA. Final Evaluation Report.
Cox, David; Streit, Fred
The Bilingual Mini School focused on educational services of a bilingual nature for students in kindergarten through grade six. At the kindergarten, first and second grade levels all classes were comprised of Spanish-dominant or bilingual students. At grades three, four and five the students were grouped based on language dominance (Spanish or English). At the sixth grade level, all students were assigned to one classroom. Program activities were designed to maximize each student's academic skills, first in the dominant language and then in the second language. Program evaluation was completed through use of pre/posttest achievement data, classroom observation, interviews with teachers and educational assistants, and a review of instructional materials. Findings indicated most program objectives were attained. Results also indicated that the program operated smoothly, the district was responsive to staff requests, and rapport among staff members was excellent. Recommendations for future program implementation and achievement test data are included. (Author/MK)
