Listen, Practice, Converse: A Communication Approach to Second Language Acquisition in Torrance Unified School District. (A Japanese and Korean Bilingual Program Funded under Title VII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.) Second Annual Evaluation Report (1985-1986).
Kester, Donald L.
External evaluation of a bilingual education program for limited-English-speaking Japanese and Korean students found that while ambitious program objectives established for the program's second year were not met, student progress was closely monitored and used in planning for the next year. Student reclassifications were reduced. Activity or process activities were also found to be ambitious and most were accomplished. Some revision of objectives and/or data-gathering procedures is recommended. In general, the program was found to be in place and functioning well. Individual objectives and related results are outlined in the text of the report, and a variety of instructional materials, forms, and documentation are appended. (MSE)
