Title VII Junior High School Bilingual Program, 1978-79. Final Evaluation Report.
Schenker, Joseph H.; And Others
This is the report of the evaluation of a Title VII bilingual bicultural program with both Spanish/English and Italian/English components. The program, which operated in three public and one private school in District 15, Brooklyn, New York, was designed to provide reading instruction in English and the student's native language, mathematics and social studies instruction (native language), and to develop a career awareness program, staff development training, an inservice undergraduate and graduate program, a bilingual learning and materials dissemination center, and a parent education and participation program. In this report, student test data are presented as indicators of the Title VII program's instructional objectives. It is concluded that, although the objectives were not met in the areas of reading and mathematics, the language assessment measure indicates that the program has had a considerable positive effect. Recommendations are offered for improving future evaluation designs. (Author/GC)
