E.P.D.A. Institute for Bilingual Educators.
Romero, Christian
Inservice bilingual education is one of many ways that can be used to help educational institutions make changes necessary to meet the educational needs of the linguistically and culturally diverse students, as well as to bring about an overall enrichment in educational systems throughout the nation. This report describes the sequence of activities, objectives, and statistical evaluation of an inservice approach to bilingual education, which was held at Garden City, Kansas, June 30, 1976, through July 20, 1976. The E.P.D.A. Institute for Bilingual Educators was funded by the United States Department of Health, Education, and Welfare under Part E of the Education Professions Development Act and sponsored by Kansas State University. This report on the E.P.D.A. Institute for Bilingual Educators is presented in three parts: (1) events leading up to the Institution, (2) specific information regarding the Institute, and (3) evaluative data collected following the Institute. The design and structure of the E.P.D.A. Institute for Bilingual Educators came about as a result of a needs assessment conducted in various southwestern Kansas communities. The evaluative data which was subjected to statistical procedure showed an apparent success in meeting the needs of the participants. (Author/CLK)
