Bilingual Program of the Bronx Community College. Annual Report, August 20, 1968-August 31, 1969.
Torres, Carmen M.; And Others
A bilingual program, thought to be the first of its kind in the United States, is described in this report. Forty-five non-English-speaking Puerto Rican students participated in a two-year project designed to enable them to enter and compete favorably in regular classes held in English and leading to an associate degree at Bronx Community College. The purpose and objectives of the program, recruitment procedures (student body and staff), structure of the program, and student progress after the first year are described. Observations and recommendations regarding the 1968-69 program are spelled out. Other considerations, including plans for program expansion, are noted. A design for evaluation of the program details tests administered to the students. Statistical analyses of the tabulated examination results accompany student profile breakdown charts. The financial report covering the period from July 1, 1968 through June 30, 1969 is included. (RL)
