Title VII Bilingual Educational Approach (B.E.A.). Community School District 28. Final Report, 1979-1980.
Community School District 28, Queens, NY.
The basic goal of the Bilingual Educational Approach (B.E.A.) Program of District 28 in Queens, New York, was to develop and maintain Hispanic students' proficiency in English within a multicultural setting. B.E.A. operated in five elementary schools and one junior high school. Services were provided to 500 students. The program was implemented somewhat differently in each of the participating schools; however, all students received instruction in English and Spanish language arts and bilingual instruction in other academic subjects. B.E.A. was evaluated through pupil achievement measured with norm referenced tests; interviews with staff, parents, and students; and classroom observations. The evaluator found the program to be of immeasurable value and recommended that it be implemented again the following year. Student achievement data are appended. (MK)
