Bilingual Program Evaluation Report, ESEA Title VII, 1970-1971.
Goodman, Frank M.; Stern, Carolyn
This report presents an evaluation of a bilingual education plan in its second year of operation. The major emphasis is on establishing a comprehensive, experimental, educational program utilizing the native language abilities of Spanish-speaking children as the primary medium of instruction until such time as the student is bilingual and capable in both English and Spanish. The program's hypothesis and design are discussed as are the personnel involved. The program and its scope are described, as are the bilingual-bicultural curriculum; acquisition, adaptation, and development of materials; and procedures for kindergarten and first and second grades. Community involvement and bilingual education as a tool for positive social change are considered. Finally, there is a discussion of staff development, budget requirements, and results. (VM)
