Improving Bilingual Program Management. A Handbook for Title VII Directors.
DeGeorge, George P., Ed.
Filled with practical advice and workable techniques and strategies to help bilingual program directors deal with the problems they face, this handbook brings together ideas and suggestions from Title VII program directors, state coordinators, and superintendents with experience in bilingual programs. The handbook, written in question and answer format, is a distillation of the contributions of presenters and participants at the 1979-80 Institutes for Program Improvement. The first chapter on program evaluation looks at such things as types of evaluation and problems of testing. The section on leadership development highlights both situational leadership and how to deal with school district personnel and administrators and the community. Proposal writing is also covered, or more specifically, assessing the needs of bilingual populations, formulating a program, and translating that program into a fundable proposal. One chapter deals with strategies for parental involvement, and another deals with strategies for involving bilingual and monolingual students in joint activities. Ways to formulate a parallel curriculum and some problems related to diagnostic and placement testing are also touched on. (JM)
