Evaluation Progress Report on Innovational Activities within the Applied Language Research Center under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.
El Paso Public Schools, TX.
This document discusses three educational experiments currently in progress within the Applied Language Research Center. Each of the programs concerns problems relating to teaching Spanish-speaking pupils in a public school setting. The Grade One Experimental Project is designed to determine if instruction in Spanish at the primary level (in an English-speaking school environment) would be of value to the pupil who is principally Spanish orientated. The second project concerns teacher training and involves an intensive English and methods course as well as a beginning Spanish course for non-Spanish-speaking school personnel. The third experiment involves a course in English as a second language for the out-of-school neighborhood youth corps. The progress evaluation for each project is discussed and appendixes provide further details on each experiment. (VM)
