Bilingual Education Program Evaluation Report 1972-1973.
The Milwaukee Bilingual Education Program, a five-year pilot project, ended its fourth year in June, 1973. The program provided a Spanish/English bilingual/bicultural curriculum taught by a bilingual staff of Spanish-American heritage. Both Spanish and English were used for instruction in order that pupils might demonstrate grade-level academic achievement in both languages by the end of the sixth grade. In the secondary program, English reading was emphasized as an aid to school achievement; courses were developed which emphasized the Latin-American experience in United States history and contemporary national and community life. From K-12, students learned about the holidays, food, literature, music, and expressions of Spanish-America and the United States. (Author/NE)
