Heuristics, Inc., Dedham, MA.
This report presents the evaluation of the Chelsea Bilingual-Bicultural Program for the 1973-1974 academic year, a project funded by Title VII of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act, as amended, and also by the city. Program staff included the following: program director, materials specialist, community worker, English as a Second Language specialist, six bilingual teachers responsible for instruction in both languages (English and Spanish) in all academic areas in grades 1-3, six teacher aides, and a secretary. The program operated at the first through third grade levels in two schools. There were three program classes in each school, one at each grade level. Classes were generally divided into two main groups according to language dominance, and these groups were subdivided into smaller groups according to ability levels. With a teacher and an aide in each class, small group and individualized teaching techniques were the most frequently used instructional approaches. Class sizes ranged from a low of 17 to a high of 24 students. This report presents the summative assessment. The report first presents the evaluation procedures for program assessment. This is followed by a description of the program and a discussion of the instructional and management components. (Author/JM)
