Summary Report of the East Texas State University ESEA Title VII Bilingual Education Project, 1976-1984.
The goal of the East Texas State University Elementary Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title VII Bilingual Education Project was to improve the education of limited, and non-English speaking, students in North Texas area schools. This was accomplished by training undergraduate bilingual teachers, in-service teachers (masters program), administrators, and specialists (post masters and doctoral programs). This eight year project (1976-1984) was evaluated annually both internally and externally. The processes were monitored, student progress charted, and participant perceptions measured annually and compared longitudinally. This final report contains 1983-84 information, an evaluation of the entire project, and a brief presentation of the follow-up survey of almost 400 former program participants. Some took only a course or two as needed, some completed only certificate requirements, and 129 completed degree programs. The East Texas State University Bilingual training project was very successful in institutionalizing the project into its regular system. Students viewed the program as worthwhile, and were, generally, successful in gaining their degrees, certificates, and the abilities necessary to teach bilingually and in English as a second language. The annual student evaluation form and the participant follow-up survey questionnaire are appended. (BS)
