Development Associates, Inc., Arlington, VA.
This study describes and assesses the state of bilingual curriculum development activities in the National Network of Centers for Bilingual Education. Recommendations are made for improvement in the creation, production, and distribution of bilingual instructional materials. The overall approach to the study was tripartite and focused on: (1) the development of an inventory of bilingual instructional materials including, a variety of European, Native American (and Alaskan), and Asian languages; (2) site visits to Centers, commercial publishers, and distributiors to analyze their procedures for the development and distribution of materials; and (3) a mail survey of Local Education Agencies, equally divided between those in the Title VII program and those with other sources of funding, on their uses of bilingual education materials. This volume of the study deals with what materials Local Education Agencies were using, how they obtained these materials, and what their needs were. It also discusses how the existing system of publicizing and disseminating bilingual education instructional materials can be improved from a user's perspective. (Author/NCR)
