This Title VII Bilingual/Bicultural Program was conducted in a New York City community school district in 1979-1980. It served limited English speaking Hispanic students in grades K-9. It provided subject area instruction in the students' native or dominant language, with an emphasis on reading instruction. The introduction of the report describes the program, its services, objectives, and staffing pattern. Methods used by evaluators are reviewed with emphasis on classroom observation techniques. Areas discussed include: (1) courses taken by teachers and paraprofessionals; (2) workshops for teachers and paraprofessionals; (3) parental involvement; (4) program management; and (5) observations of the Bureau for Monitoring and Review. Test data are presented for Spanish reading achievement, mathematics achievement, and preschool general ability. Data are arranged by grade, school, and district over a three year period.
