State Wide CODOFIL Program of French Instruction in the Elementary Grades, 1974-75, Evaluation Report.
Ghini, Costantino; And Others
This report presents an evaluation of the Louisiana state-wide program of French instruction at the primary level for the academic year 1974-75, the third year of the program's implementation. The focus of the evaluation is on the attainment of linguistic objectives and the measurement of the community's support of the program. The program consists of four major components: instruction of French as a second language in elementary schools, career education, an inservice teacher training program, and adult night classes. The linguistic progress findings in the report, which follow a summary of findings and demographic statistics, apply to the first two components. Samples and results of the surveys of attitudes of parish superintendents, supervisors, principals, parents, and adult French students constitute the body of the report, along with a summary of the inservice teacher training program. Comments and recommendations conclude the report. Following the report is a copy of Louisiana Senate Bill No. 639, the act which authorizes the teaching of second languages in grades 1-12 in Louisiana schools. (CLK)
