The first, "The Language of the Sioux," is a bibliographic essay dealing with the studies that have been made to date of the Sioux language and its dialects. A Title 7 bilingual education project at Loneman Day School in Oglala, South Dakota, and a Title 1 bilingual education program in the Bethel Agency, Juneau Area, Alaska, are reported. Other articles examine means teachers use to evaluate their students' progress in English. They include: (1) "Testing Language Skills," (2) "Common Errors in Constructing Multiple Choice Items," and (3) "The Language of Tests for Young Children." A section on Indian languages contains a story in Papago and a sample of the Cree materials presently being developed by the Title 7 bilingual project on the Rocky Boy reservation in Montana.
