Rock Program Evaluation, 1968 - 1969.
Southwestern Cooperative Educational Lab., Albuquerque, NM.
The Region One Curriculum Kit (ROCK) was utilized as part of a preschool instructional program during the 1968-69 school year. This report presents an assessment of the program. Four groups of Spanish-speaking students were tested by the Michael Test of Oral English Production. Three of the groups utilized the ROCK materials which are designed to increase the oral English development of five-year-old native speakers of Spanish. Group four was a control group and utilized standard basal reading materials. Analysis indicated significant gains in oral language expression for those students in the experimental groups when compared to the control group. The conclusions and recommendations of this report call for an expansion of the program with specific emphasis on teacher training programs. (DK)
