Individualized Bilingual Instruction. Final Evaluation: 1978-79 Program Year. No. 15 in Series.
The 1978-79 evaluation report of an interstate bilingual early education program for migrant children from age 3 through third grade which operates year-round sites at Connell and Moses Lake, Washington and at La Grulla, Texas, presents a narrative program description and the progress made in each of five components: instruction, training, community and parent involvement, materials development, and management. The report discusses the mobile component of the Texas side which operates from April through October in temporary locations as the children move to northern work sites in the migrant stream; curriculum materials have been adapted which can be used effectively by bilingual migrant adults with limited academic background and no previous teaching experience. The goal, need, teaching process or involvement approach, and results for each component are given, along with a summary of findings. The report indicates that overall the program has met or partially met its objective in each component. Appendices include information on the testing procedures and data collection, statistical data on the analysis of test scores in the instructional component, and a technical report of the Bilingual Mini Head Start Test of Cultural Concepts.
