This document is an interim evaluation report of language development curriculums in full year Head Start programs operating in the five state area the Research and Evaluation Center serves. One experimental study in language development carried on in cooperation with the Texas and Tulane centers is reported in depth. The study was implemented in ten classrooms in two sites (Henderson, North Carolina and Vero Beach, Florida) and used the Buchanan Readiness in Language Arts program with various combinations of supplements, carefully monitored teacher training, and packaged reinforcement schedules. Appendixes comprise four-fifths of the document and include two manuals for teachers (Buchanan-Swanson Supplement and the Reinstein Reinforcement Program), a cover letter and sample questionnaire used in the language program evaluation, a listing of instruments common to national evaluation projects, Center forms and reports used for a variety of tests and testing conditions, and a description of Center quality control procedures and data processing.
