Effective Schools Research and Language Instruction Programs.
Malave, Lilliam M.
This paper presents a followup of selected studies on effective schools with a population of bilingual and/or limited-English-proficient (LEP) students. Over 150 research papers on both effective schools and effective bilingual LEP instruction were reviewed. The literature was divided into three categories: (1) studies with a population including linguistically and culturally different students within a bilingual or monolingual setting; (2) evaluations about the degree of effectiveness of mostly federally-funded bilingual programs; and (3) investigations of effective bilingual instructional practices or features. It is reported that the results of a survey of 97 of the research authors demonstrate the limited extent to which the research literature recognizes LEP students in its sample populations. Implications of these findings for the planning and development of effective instructional programs for LEP students are discussed, and recommendations for future research are offered. A 38-item bibliography is included. (MSE)
