Effects of Locally Conducted Research on Policy and Practice Regarding Bilingual Inservice Teacher Education. Executive Summary.
Holtzman, Wayne, Jr.
This executive summary describes the development and conclusions of a federally-funded research project designed to gain information on the process of research on instructional problems. The project's impact on inservice education practices for teachers of Limited English Proficient (LEP) students is also described. The main purpose of the project was to determine what the effects would be and what changes would occur in the school district's inservice education program as a result of the locally conducted study. A second purpose of the study was to describe the nature of the collaborative process that evolved between the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (SEDL) and the local school district. The report is devoted to five areas: (1) background and contextual information about the school district; (2) the collaborative relationship between SEDL and the school district; (3) the research approach that was employed in the study; (4) a discussion of the major findings; and (5) a brief summary of changes which the school district plans to implement in its inservice program for teachers of LEP children during the 1981-1982 school year.
