An Evaluation of District Decentralized Projects--ESEA Title VII Program--in Community School District 14 of the New York City Public School System. Final Report.
Institute for Educational Development, New York, NY.
This is the final report of the Institute for Educational Development's evaluation of District 14's 1972-73 Title VII, 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act, program. The Bilingual Early Childhood Center Program has completed its third year of operation. This year the program served approximately 200 students divided into seven classes; one prekindergarten, two kindergarten, two first grade, and two second grade classes. The staff included a project director, two community-liaison workers, seven teachers, and 11 paraprofessionals. About 85 percent of the students were Spanish-dominant. The aim of the bilingual program is to offer a school program in which children receive instruction in both English and Spanish depending on language dominance. According to long-range objectives in the area of academic performance, students should be at or above grade level in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in English by the end of the fourth grade. Furthermore, children should also be competent in Spanish. Another long-range goal is the creation of a positive orientation toward school. The instructional program consisted of language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, music, arts and crafts, and storytelling. The Distar instructional program was used for language arts and reading. (Author/JM)
