Bilingual-Bicultural Program, District 2, 1977-78. Final Report, Title VII.
Fox, Louise W.; And Others
This report evaluates the bilingual-bicultural program in a New York City School District where more than half the 20,000 school children are of Asian (mostly Chinese-American) or Hispanic background. The goal of the program was to provide for the linguistic and academic needs of these children and to capitalize on their native language proficiency while competency was developed in English. The following factors are analyzed: instructional activities, staff development, community and parent involvement, curriculum development, and resource centers. The involvement and attitudes of teachers in the program are reviewed, with special attention to the usefulness of college courses relating to bilingual education; and a report by an outside observer on the effectiveness of the program is included. The evaluation design and methodology are described. Tables are presented and summarized along with the conclusions reached by the evaluators on the effectiveness of the program. (WP)
