House Bill No. 1 Special English Classes: Evaluation.
Maynes, J. O. "Rocky", Jr.
As an evaluation report, this 1970 document summarizes information from 13 Arizona school districts involved in special English classes under House Bill No. 1. Program emphasis was on oral language development, vocabulary, and comprehension. Each district used its own method of evaluating progress; therefore, in synthesizing the information, each district is listed with a description of the evaluation instrument and the results of the pre- and post-tests. Total results from each district's evaluation showed progress in oral language development during the interim between pre- and post-tests. It is noted that, although progress was made in each program, many students fell below a level of language proficiency which would allow them success in a beginning reading instruction program. Tables of state and school district contributions and expenditures are included, as well as 5 recommendations. It is concluded that a significant contribution was made in oral English development for the Spanish and Indian children. The document is appended with pertinent information. (AN)
