This report provides information on feedback from a consultant panel concerning the initial phase of the ethnographic component of the multimethod evaluation of the Head Start Bilingual Bicultural Curriculum Development Project. Adjustments made as a result of feedback are indicated. The document is organized into several sections. First, a brief review of the evaluation objectives is presented, followed by a summary of the evaluation approach developed by Juarez and Associates to achieve the objectives. The report continues with a discussion of the development of observational instruments to be used in the evaluation. A description of the recruitment and selection of the staff who will use the data collection instruments, and of the various components of the training of the field personnel, is then presented in detail. The report concludes with a series of recommendations for the remainder of the ethnographic component of the project. Several related sets of materials, such as a timeline, job descriptions, socioemotional rating scales and a list of training personnel are appended. (Author/RH)
