Montecel, Maria Robledo; Cortez, Josie Danini; Cortez, Albert; Villarreal, Abelardo
This guide is based on a research study, "Successful Bilingual Education Programs: Development and Dissemination of Criteria to Identify Promising/Exemplary Practices in Bilingual Education at the National Level." The guide presents an analytic rubric for evaluating a school's success in educating English language learners. The rubric assesses five dimensions: school indicators (e.g., retention rate, dropout rate, and test exemption rates); student outcomes (e.g., oral and written language proficiency and content area mastery); leadership (e.g., vision and goals, school climate, and school organization and accountability); support (e.g., e.g., professional development, parent involvement, and community involvement); and programmatic and instructional practices (e.g., classroom climate, curriculum and instruction, and teacher expectations). For each criterion, the guide indicates which specific educational equity goal(s) it reflects: comparably high academic achievement and other student outcomes; equitable access and inclusion; equitable treatment; equitable opportunity to learn; and equitable resources. Bilingual education resources are listed. (SM)
