Year 1. Final Report.

A detailed program description and evaluation are contained in the final report of a demonstration project designed to prepare certified teachers of limited English speaking ability students for bilingual bicultural education programs. The introductory section summarizes the purpose of the program, which offered traineeships to individuals intending to acquire a major or minor in bilingual education and to become proficient in both Spanish and English. The second section, the bulk of the report, presents objectives and courses for the four-year degree program leading to Wisconsin certification. Required and elective courses are listed by age levels (early childhood through secondary) and by program components (language, culture, professional preparation, and fieldwork in urban classrooms). Subsequent sections discuss selection of trainees, coordination between the university and local education agencies, and collaboration with the Center for Latin America. The final section contains the program evaluation, conducted by an independent evaluator and based on questionnaires administered to all staff and student members of the project. Appendices include a variety of project correspondence and the traineeship application and selection forms. (JH)
