Individualized Bilingual Instruction. Final Evaluation: 1977-78 Program Year. No. 13 in Series.
The 1977-78 evaluation report of an interstate bilingual early education program for migrant children from age 3 through third grade which operates two permanent sites in Washington and one site in Texas, presents the program's progress in each of five components: instruction, staff development, parent and community involvement, materials development, and management. The report discusses the Texas site at La Grulla which operates a mobile component in which the teachers and administrative and training staff relocate to northern work sites, providing continuing services to children who move from Texas in the migrant stream. The goal, need, teaching process or involvement approach, and results for each component are given, along with a summary of findings. The preface is a paper presented at the February 1979 Southwest Educational Research Association meeting, in which the successful findings of this evaluation are shown to be sharply at variance with those in the American Institute for Research report on the impact of Title VII bilingual programs. Appendices include information on testing procedures and data collection, statistical data on the analysis of test scores in the instructional component, and technical report on the Mini Head Start Test of Cultural Concepts.
