The Chinese Bilingual Pilot Program, ESEA Title VII, 1974: Program Guide.
San Francisco Unified School District, CA.
The 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act Title VII Chinese Bilingual Pilot Program is a bilingual/bicultural program the purpose of which is to provide for the special educational needs of children who have limited English-speaking ability, who come from environments where the dominant language is one other than English, and who come from low-income families. The program is charged with developing and disseminating Chinese bilingual/bicultural curriculum materials, providing instruction in both English and Cantonese in the basic subject areas, providing the parents of our students with second language instruction in English and Cantonese, and developing an educational prototype which might serve as a replicable model for the development of a K-12 bilingual/bicultural program. A student in the program divides his school time between two teachers in two different classrooms: an English component class and a Chinese bilingual component class. The student will spend half the day in one class and the other half in the other. In some grades the alternation between components is every other day. The students are offered the following subjects: English reading and writing, Chinese reading and writing, spoken English, spoken Cantonese, mathematics, social studies/science, music, physical education, and art.
