Bilingual Mini-School Tutoring Project. Evaluation Progress Report Number 1, March 1974.
An early childhood education program for children of migrant and seasonal farm workers, the project provides a supplemental tutoring program, offered outside of regular school hours, by bilingual adult paraprofessionals who are former migrants or seasonal farm workers. Composed of a "mobile" and a "stationary" program, the project focuses on: (1) developing the child's ability to understand and use both Spanish and English in oral communication, (2) giving bicultural instruction, and (3) reinforcing the child's learning of the basic academic skills of reading and mathematics. In the mobile program, migrant adults are recruited in La Grulla (Texas) and employed year-round to serve the children as they relocate to various work stops. The stationary program serves both migrant children on an in and out basis, and children of seasonal farm workers in permanent locations operating year-round in Connell and Moses Lake, Washington. Covering the stationary program's progress from February 1 through March 31, 1974, this report is limited to reporting on the "start-up" objectives. These include the institutional objective involving coordination with public school personnel, contact with parents, and student enrollment; and the procedural objectives involving recruitment orientation and initial staff training. Since the mobile program is not scheduled for implementation until April 1974, it is not covered. (NQ)
