An Individualized Multi-Media Bilingual Education Magnet Model. Evaluation of the First Year, 1976-1977. Report 7863. Title VII Project.
Offenberg, Robert M.; And Others
The first year of an individualized bilingual magnet project was evaluated. A total of 254 elementary and secondary students in Philadelphia participated. Multimedia bilingual education was provided to students of non-English speaking backgrounds at two sites. At the elementary site, bilingual education was offered in Spanish, Korean, Vietnamese, French, Italian, and Chinese. Evaluation of pupil performance objectives suggested that the magnet pupils acquired English more rapidly than did similar pupils city-wide. Dropout incidence in the high school group was very low, but no significant change in attendance was noted. (Author/RW)
