Watt, Michael; De Jong, Marilyn
This is the second of three volumes reporting a project to develop an instrument to evaluate instructional materials used in bilingual education, community language education, and bicultural education programs in Australian schools. The project had three purposes: (1) to examine the research literature on the development of models and instruments to to evaluate immigrant education resource materials; (2) to develop an instrument based on appropriate criteria and standards; and (3) to utilize the developed evaluation instrument for the analysis of Dutch bilingual and bicultural educational materials available to Australian schools. This volume is a guide to available Dutch bilingual bicultural materials, and contains: (1) an introduction to using the developed evaluation criteria to analyze resource materials within the context of appropriate programs; (2) analyses for 10 basic instructional resource materials; (3) annotations for 20 supplementary resource materials; and (4) analyses for two professional resource materials on the Netherlands. Each analysis contains the following components: identification of resource material; its rationale, research, and development; antecedents; background characteristics; goals; transactions; contents; methods; outcomes; evaluation; contingencies and congruences; assessment and recommendation. Indexes to titles of books in a series, subjects, authors and developers, and publishers and distributers are provided. (BS)
