Final Evaluation of Project Aprende, 1978-79. School District #6 ESEA Title VII Program.
Keller, Gary D.; Tilis, Howard S.
Project Aprende is an Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title VII bilingual-bicultural program established in three junior high schools in New York City. The program is intended to supplement and enrich basic tax levy bilingual instructional programs. The program includes five components: bilingual-bicultural instruction in reading, language arts, and selected content areas; a bilingual guidance program; a staff development program; a curriculum development project; and a parent involvement and education program. The program services a limited English speaking group of children and a group of non-Hispanics whose parents expressed an interest in having their children study Spanish as a second language. Students receive content area instruction in their native language and instruction in their second language depending upon need. Subjects such as art, music, and physical education are conducted bilingually. Program evaluation was completed employing classroom observation, questionnaires and pre/postest achievement measures. Data indicated that Project Aprende is functioning as intended. Recommendations are made for improvement of the basically sound program. (Author/MK)
