Teaching Spanish-Speaking Children to Read in New Jersey.
Feeley, Joan T.
In order to learn the status of bilingual (Spanish/English) reading programs in New Jersey just before the implementation of a new bilingual education law in July 1975, a survey was conducted of school districts reporting a student body consisting of more than five percent Spanish-surnamed students. This document contains tables and discussions of the responses to questions regarding educational levels of bilingual programs, subject areas taught in the native language, percentage of the school day spent using Spanish, time spent on instruction in English as a second language, placement of children in bilingual programs, tests to determine language proficiency, reading programs (Spanish/English) provided at each level, English and Spanish reading materials in use, and assessment of reading achievement in English and Spanish. The document also describes a model in beginning reading for bilingual students. A list of references and a copy of the questionnaire are included. (JM)
