San Francisco Bilingual-Bicultural Education Project for Spanish/English Speaking Children. Final Evaluation Report: 1970-71.
Dillon, Paul L., Jr., Comp.
Services offered through this project were concentrated on the Mission District of San Francisco, California, where the highest percentage of monolingual and bilingual Spanish-speaking population is concentrated. The student linguistic target for project classes was half-and-half monolingual Spanish speakers and monolingual English speakers. Analysis of the data was carried out at each grade level on the total dominant language Inter-American Test of General Abilities pre-post difference scores. English and Spanish materials were used for instruction in language arts, culture and heritage, science, mathematics, and social science. The staff was offered preservice and inservice training. Successful attempts were made to involve parents and the community in the project. The major recommendation for improvement of the project was to provide for formal parent involvement in the project.
