Kester, Donald L.
In this evaluation of the fourth and final year of a Japanese and Korean bilingual education program, the program's seven major goals and sub-objectives are reviewed, and the program's success in attaining these goals is discussed. Data was obtained from visits to participating schools. It is concluded that the program met 15 of its 16 stated objectives, and came within one percentage point of attaining the sixteenth. Appended materials comprising about half the document include: photographs of project staff at each of four sites and the project director; the flowchart and English reading test used in the student identification process; examples of materials related to student monitoring, classroom instruction, and student work; the principal's observation form and photographs of aides at work with program participants; a chart of student data covering the entire project; the project director's tabulation of parent awareness of school activities for each site; and the teacher questionnaire and responses concerning students, teacher, and administrator knowledge of Japanese and Korean students' cultures and language needs as a result of the program.
