Milwaukee Bilingual Education Program 1977-1978.
Bortin, Barbara H.
This evaluation report describes the outcomes of the third year of an ESEA Title VII continuation grant to refine an exemplary bilingual/bicultural kindergarten-primary prototype program and to develop three new secondary subjects: English for Latinos, Bilingual Typing, and Career Orientation. The 1,004 pupils in the 1976-77 program varied in language dominance from monolingual English through bilingualism to monolingual Spanish. For these pupils in a "developmental" model, bilingual teachers presented the regular curricula in both Spanish and English in a program emphasizing Hispanic culture. The bilingual/bicultural program and the evaluation design are described. Results are presented for kindergarten, English reading, Spanish reading, bilingual language skills, mathematics, secondary school programs, English for Latinos, and bilingual typing. Additional studies include attitudes toward school, a parent survey, a bilingual typing survey, a modified cloze test for Spanish reading comprehension, a census of limited-English-speaking pupils, and evaluation of a preservice workshop.
