The Identification and Description of Exemplary Bilingual Education Programs.
Campeau, Peggie L.; And Others
This is the final report of one of three studies in an overall project entitled "Evaluation of Bilingual Education Programs." The objectives of this study were to: (1) identify and recommend as exemplary up to 10 bilingual education programs for submission to the Dissemination Review Panel (DRP) of the Education Division, DHEW, and (2) develop detailed descriptions of those programs approved by the DRP for dissemination. Screenings and site visits reduced the candidate pool of 175 programs to 7. The DRP approved the following four for dissemination: Alice Independent School District, Alice, Texas; Aprendemos en Dos Idiomas, Corpus Christi, Texas; Bilingual Education Program, Houston, Texas; and St. John Valley Bilingual Education Program, Madawaska, Maine. Descriptions were written for each of the four in sufficient detail to provide local educators with ideas to guide them in implementing similar practices. Each program was described as it operated during 1973-74, but some program components were treated historically to illustrate major changes. The context within which each program developed and operated, and the special educational needs of the students, were also discussed. In addition, specific recommendations were made on ways in which local evaluations could be improved to increase chances for identifying exemplary programs. (Author/RM)
