Hughes, B. E.
The Bilingual Education Program for 1969-70 was evaluated in this report. The program consisted of 1,220 Mexican American pupils in grades 1-3 in Harlandale Independent School District, San Marcos Independent School District, and St. John's Catholic School in San Marcos. Its primary objective was to provide a learning situation to meet the special needs of children who speak limited English and whose dominant language is Spanish. Its goal was to help the child achieve normal educational progress by third grade. The program involved 5 components: curriculum development, instruction, teaching improvement, community involvement, and project coordination. Specific objectives for each component, participants, measuring devices, and an analysis of data obtained were presented. Tabular data covered teachers, schools, and pupils; C.A. and I.Q. scores for first grade; Metropolitan Achievement Test Scores in English language arts and math; attendance percentages; comparisons of Inferred Self-Concept Judgment Scale results; and teachers' rating. Appendices included sample rating scales and questionnaires, parents' comments, and a sample lesson from a first grade social studies unit. (NQ)
