Lubbock Bilingual [Elementary] Education Program. Evaluation Report, 1971.
Lubbock Independent School District, TX.
The evaluation of the 1970-71 bilingual education program in northern Lubbock, Texas, is provided in this paper. The main purpose of the program was to plan, develop, operate, evaluate, and, if necessary, modify a bilingual program which could be operated in self-contained classrooms. The 4 major components of the program, which included 5 kindergarten and 5 1st-grade sections located at 5 elementary schools, were instruction, staff development, materials development, and community involvement. In evaluating the program, a random sample selected from students from the total program was used. English language activities, the language used by the children in unsupervised situations, and the Test of Basic Experiences administered in both English and Spanish were used to measure language growth. The measures employed indicated that the program's objectives, based upon achievement of educational objectives rather than upon comparison of rate of gain, were being approached. (NQ)
