Final Evaluation Report for the C.S. 211 Bilingual Gifted and Talented Program 1978-1979.
Brumberg, Stephan F.; Toledo, Victor
This report provides a program description and evaluation findings of a bilingual program for gifted and talented children conducted at C.S. 211, an elementary school serving black and Hispanic children in an economically deprived area of the Bronx, New York. The program's goals, which included above grade level reading and mathematics performance in the children's native language and acquisition of the second language, are reviewed. Instructional practices, curriculum and materials development, and staff development designed to accomplish these goals are described. Program activities for the 1978-79 academic year, including classroom and performing arts activities, are reviewed. The Bilingual Gifted and Talented Program is positively evaluated, with particular praise given to the teaching staff of C.S. 211. Based on observations, on comparisons of achievement test data with the District average, and on results from a student ouestionnaire, it is recommended that funding for the program be continued. Problem areas relating to the program's scope, administration, selection and testing procedures, and staff utilization are also identified and discussed. (GC)
