Final Evaluation for "The Forgotten Southside", Harlandale Independent School District's Bilingual Education Program, 1975-1976.
Harrison, Helene W.
Comprised of 60 pre-K-6 classrooms, the program was designed to provide bilingual education for pupils who have limited English speaking ability. Program objectives were to: prevent their educational retardation by instructing them in Spanish while developing their command of English; enhance their understanding and cognitive development in both languages; give them the advantage of becoming literate in both languages; and instill a knowledge of and pride in their bicultural heritage. During 1975-76, there were 1,726 pupils from 10 elementary schools and 2 junior high schools enrolled in the program. This evaluation report discusses the test results from the: Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test; Bilingual Syntax Measure; Boehm Test of Basic Concepts; Prueba de Lectura (Spanish Reading Test); Social Studies Units and Packages; Projected Self-Concept Inventory; Psychomotor Skills Learned and Demonstrated--Mexican music, songs, and dances; and Comprehensive Test of Basic Skills. Both English and Spanish versions of these tests were administered on a pre- and posttest basis. These tests indicated that continuing bilingual education resulted in higher performance. (NQ)
