Bilingual-Bicultural Program at C.S. 77, 1975-76.
Hennessey, James J.
This report presented the final evaluation of a Bilingual-Bicultural Program in a community school in the Bronx, grades one through six. The project was designed to increase the spoken English language comprehension of elementary school age children who were found to be below the 20th percentile on the Language Assessment Battery. Ten educational assistants worked closely with 168 target youngsters in activities that ranged from individualized instruction, to small group work, to testing, diagnosing, and prescribing interventions. The primary goal of these activities was to bring each participant to a higher level of competence in using and understanding English. The findings of the evaluation were that the major goal was not fully realized, in spite of very well coordinated, highly professional effort on the part of project staff members. Only 47.1 percent (short of the 65 percent goal) of the students participating in the project gained the expected 10 percentile ranks needed to satisfy the project objectives. The project was recommended for continuation, however, with some modifications. (Author/JM)
