Sirgado, Isabel Cid
This is an evaluation of the bilingual program in District 30, Queens, New York City during 1979-1980. The report states that the program was designed to aid the educational and cultural development of Greek and Korean speaking limited English pupils in grades K-6. Program objectives are listed as achievement gains in students' English speech and comprehension, native language proficiency, social studies, science, and mathematics performance, and increased student participation in classroom activities and extracurricular activities. Pretest and posttest scores show that the first three objectives were met and teachers' ratings reveal increased student involvement. Notes from several classroom observations are provided and teacher training, parent activities, and the Parents Advisory Committee are discussed. (APM)
