A Bilingual Math-Science Learning Center.
Jourdane, John R.
The purpose of this study is to determine if children who attend a bilingual math-science center will increase their level of performance to a greater degree than their counterparts on a test of problem solving and scientific thinking. The study tests 86 sixth-grade students in the Cutler Elementary School in the Cutler-Orosi Unified School District, California. The Sequential Test of Educational Progress (STEP): Science 4B, developed by the Educational Testing Service, was administered to the students. Results point out that the experimental group which attended the Center improved considerably more than the control group. The author concludes that a math-science center should be a basic part of every bilingual school. (RL)
