Harrison, Helene W.
Comprised of pre-K-6 and LLD (Language Learning Disability) classrooms, the program is designed to provide bilingual education for pupils who have limited English speaking ability. There are 1,612 pupils from 7 elementary schools and 1 junior high school. Program objectives are to: (1) prevent their educational retardation by instructing them in Spanish while developing their command of English; (2) enhance their understanding and congitive development in both languages; (3) give them the advantage of becoming literate in both languages; and (4) instill a knowledge of and pride in their bicultural heritage. Project components are: development of and revision of curriculum materials for bilingual classes, bilingual instruction in grades pre-K-6 and LLD, staff development, and parental and community involvement. However, this report deals with the instructional component. This 1974-75 evaluation report discusses the test results from the: Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, Boehm Test of Basic Concepts, School Readiness Survey, Comprehensive Test of Basic Skills, Prueba de Lectura (Spanish reading test), Bilingual Education Program Test in Social Studies and Science (a copy included in the appendix). Projected Self-Concept Inventory, and Wide Range Achievement Test. These tests were administered on a pre- and posttest basis; both English and Spanish versions were administered. (NQ)
