Spanish Immersion Program Needs Assessment Survey. I. For Parents and II. For Teachers [and Results of the Culver City Spanish Immersion Program 1987 Neeeds Assessment].
Rubenstein, Dorothy J.; Rothman, Sylvia
The results (compiled in 1989) of two studies relating to the Culver City (California) Spanish Immersion Program are presented. The program, begun in 1971, provides immersion education for kindergarten through fifth grade and is articulated with a middle school program for immersion students. In 1987, two surveys gathered parent and teacher perceptions of the program's strengths and weaknesses. The first of the two documents consists of the survey instruments. The second document summarizes the survey results as compiled for presentation to parents, teachers, and administrators. The quantifiable results of the parent survey are presented in chart form, and specific written comments are quoted or paraphrased. Parent comments were sought concerning specific aspects of the English reading and language arts curriculum, the Spanish language and content area curriculum, homework, goals, program areas of strength and weakness, and areas of concern or interest. The teacher survey sought comments from immersion teachers concerning the program's philosophy and goals, teacher training, program planning and evaluation, characteristics of immersion students, needs, and aspects of interest or concern.
