Evaluation Report of the Harlandale Independent School District's Bilingual Education Program.
Harrison, Helene W.
The 1973 report evaluates the Bilingual Education Program of Harlandale Independent School District. The bilingual program is designed for Spanish speaking pupils in grades K-5 (1,517 children in 8 of the district's 15 elementary schools) who have limited English-speaking ability. The 1972-73 project involved (1) development and revision of curriculum materials; (2) bilingual instruction in K-5; (3) preservice and inservice training of bilingual teachers and aides; (4) supervision of bilingual student teachers and student interns; (5) involvement of bilingual parents in their children's education; (6) increased community support for bilingual education; and (7) coordination of the cooperative efforts of 2 school districts and a teacher-training institution--Harlandale Independent School District, San Marcos Independent School District, and Southwest Texas State University. The 31 tables give results of tests used to evaluate the bilingual program--e.g., Peabody Picture Vocabulary Tests, Metropolitan Achievement Test, Prueba de Lectura, BEP Test in Social Studies and Science, Allocation of Time in Language Teaching (English and Spanish), and Inferred Self-Concept Scores. Eight recommendations are also included--e.g., the coordinator should emphasize to teachers the need to develop both English and Spanish reading comprehension.
