An assessment is made of the duration and extent of the bilingual component, and the methods of second language teaching in general. Included is an analysis of materials, student grouping, tutoring, curriculum patterns, and cognitive development. The report also discusses self-esteem, learning strategies, the bicultural and community components, and means of evaluation. Attached are the following items: an abstract of the project, a description of the extent of community involvement, a bibliography of books of interest to Puerto Rican children, and a supplement to the newsletter of the Philadelphia bilingual programs containing another list of books in Spanish for children.
