Let's Be Amigos: Title VII Bilingual Project. Evaluation of the First Year, 1969-1970.
Offenberg, Robert M.
This study assesses the implementation of the "Let's Be Amigos" program for Spanish- and English-speaking students during its first year. The program, operating in Philadelphia at the elementary and secondary school levels, is described in terms of instructional objectives, evaluation criteria and procedures, student performance, teacher perceptions of student behavior, reading and writing skills of first-grade students, and the continuing-education-in-Spanish program. Commentary on a summer institute (1969) for training teachers in bilingual education programs concludes the report. Statistical data, linguistic examples, and graphs are used extensively. (RL)
