Colombo, Louis; Cantwell, Glo (1981). OCETA Job Preparation Research Project. Final Report. The Albuquerque Office of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Administration (OCETA) contracted with the Albuquerque Urban Observatory to conduct a study of employability skills needed by OCETA participants, to identify training programs that might be available to teach these skills, and to suggest a new model for OCETA job preparation training to be integrated into the existing OCETA program. The Urban Observatory interviewed Albuquerque OCETA personnel and experts in occupational training; reviewed literature; searched for job preparation training programs; and held group discussions with job preparation trainers, jobs counselors, job developers, and employers to determine skills needed and possible training programs to use. This research identified four principal categories (job finding, job keeping, attitudes, and personal capabilities) broken down into 51 specific job preparation areas, ranging from resume writing to positive self-image, which should be taught in OCETA job training programs. The research also found that many of the OCETA participants did not possess these skills; however, women, those with greater education, those who had received CETA skills training, and older participants generally had a higher level of job-seeking skills. Following a review of training programs, seven national and seven local programs that would meet training needs were identified and profiled. In addition, suggestions for improving the Albuquerque OCETA program were made, such as stressing job-finding skills, making more careful assessment of participants before they enter the program, and contracting with a job-training organization to conduct the major portion of the program.

Duran, Elva (1980). Teaching Reading to Disadvantaged Hispanic Children Based on Direct Instruction. A controlled experiment was conducted in 1980 with 117 first graders in two Southwestern schools near the Mexican border to determine the effects of direct instruction in teaching bilingual Hispanic children to read. Direct instruction has been defined as using modeling, reinforcement, prompting, discrimination learning, and correction/feedback for positive self concept development. Two rural schools with high percentages of Chicano students and with established bilingual education programs were selected for the study; however, School A served a poor neighborhood and was judged to be disadvantaged while School B served a more affluent area. In each school 58 first grade Hispanic bilingual children were randomly selected and randomly assigned to two experimental groups, conditions for which were identical except that one group used direct instruction and the other group used the regular bilingual method. Significant effects resulted between schools, between groups, and within a group/school interaction. Tentatively, direct instruction can significantly improve beginning bilingual children's achievement more than regular bilingual instruction; bilingual education may be enhanced by incorporating direct instruction into its teaching method. "School characteristics" may interact with the effects of any specific teaching method. Descriptors: Bilingual Education, Bilingual Students, Comparative Analysis, Concept Teaching

Duran, Elva (1980). Reading Curriculum for Beginning Hispanic Bilingual Children Based on Direct Instruction. Addressing the needs of Hispanic bilingual children with learning problems, the manual is arranged to help teach beginning students vowels and the concepts of shapes in a step-by-step manner based on Englemann's principles of direct instruction. Equivalent Spanish/English chapters are designed to teach pronunciation and identification of vowels for reading remediation and to teach the concepts of shapes such as the triangle, square, rectangle, and circle. Vowels and shapes are selected as the teaching topics because they are major areas of learning difficulties for the Hispanic child having special needs. It is stated that once an instructor becomes familiar with the manual, an easy transfer can be made using the manual's principles to teach other concepts. Review and testing sections are included at the end of each chapter. Results of a field test with 120 bilingual first graders indicate that the manual's direct method of teaching significantly increases students' learning of vowels and concepts of shapes as compared to other bilingual methods. Appended are the Spanish Reading Assessment Instrument (unique in that it utilizes "non-sense" words to assess a child's reading ability in Spanish), instructions for administering the instrument, and an answer sheet (which should reveal all the specific areas where the student has difficulty and which can be used for diagnostic purposes).
