Region One Bilingual Education Project. 1970-1971 Final Evaluation Report.
Education Service Center Region 1, Edinburg, TX.
The report evaluates the Texas Education Service Center bilingual program provided in Region I during 1970-71. The 3-year program, for Mexican American students having little or no knowledge of the English language, was designed to enroll students at the kindergarten level and carry them through grade 2. Program components included a kindergarten course designed to teach Spanish-speaking students to read Spanish, a 2-year sequence of oral English instruction (kindergarten and grade 1) coupled with a 2-year experimental English reading program (grades 1 and 2), and a 2-year program in English and Spanish designed to teach 1st and 2nd graders about their families, culture, and school. The program, serving 1,210 students from 5 public and 2 parochial schools, had as its specific objectives (1) to field-test and revise the first-year Spanish reading program, (2) to field-test and revise the English as a second language program, (3) to develop and pilot-test a first-year transitional English reading program, and (4) to develop and pilot-test a first-year social education program. In the report, each major objective is examined in terms of its specific objectives, the students, evaluation measures, and results of student testing. Conclusions and recommendations are provided for each objective. Included are 26 tables and 2 figures. (MJB)
