Oreck, Barry A.; Owen, Steven V.; Baum, Susan M. (2003). Validity, Reliability, and Equity Issues in an Observational Talent Assessment Process in the Performing Arts, Journal for the Education of the Gifted. The lack of valid, research-based methods to identify potential artistic talent hampers the inclusion of the arts in programs for the gifted and talented. The Talent Assessment Process in Dance, Music, and Theater (D/M/T TAP) was designed to identify potential performing arts talent in diverse populations, including bilingual and special education students and students who have had no prior formal arts instruction. Research results over 13 years in elementary schools in New York and Ohio provide evidence that creative and artistic potential can be assessed validly and equitably and that such assessments can offer a reliable prediction of success in rigorous arts instruction.   [More]   [More]  Descriptors: Talent, Art Education, Prediction, Construct Validity

Porter, Rosalie Pedalino (1997). The Politics of Bilingual Education, Society. Argues that educational research does not support the effects of transitional bilingual education as a superior instructional practice for improving the English-language achievement of limited-English-proficient students. Real studies are needed of the effectiveness of intensive English language instruction. Descriptors: Bilingual Education, Bilingual Education Programs, Educational Policy, Educational Research

Muscat, Eugene J.; And Others (1977). Educational Technology in Bilingual Education, Educational Horizons. One problem in bilingual education is how to facilitate "leap-frogging", i.e., how to take advantage of already existing material in one language and transfer that material to another language. Presents some technology-based possibilities for accomplishing this leap-frogging. Descriptors: Bilingual Education, Computer Assisted Instruction, Computer Managed Instruction, Definitions

Rothstein, Richard (1998). Bilingual Education: The Controversy, Phi Delta Kappan. A commonly held notion of how earlier generations of immigrants were educated–often used as the chief argument supporting English immersion–is a myth. Far from succeeding by immersing themselves in English, immigrant groups did much worse than the native-born; some groups, particularly Italians, did much worse than others. Research findings are mixed. Bilingual education issue should be depoliticized. (34 references) Descriptors: Acculturation, Bilingual Education, Economic Factors, Educational History

Vazquez, Jose A. (1975). National Perspective on Bilingual Education. What has been called bilingual education in this country presently has as its sole concern the linguistic performance of the student, thereby neglecting the implementation of a coherent conceptual system which takes into consideration the ways in which the student comes to understand the world around him. Furthermore, bilingual education has not been defined as a collective effort for the communication of sound teaching strategies and techniques for the bilingual and potentially-bilingual student; and it has not come to grips with the assessment procedures which are geared to the actual teaching/learning situation. This paper argues that we must not allow the designation of bilingual education as solely a temporary measure, to be utilized until the student is capable of receiving instruction in English; making no effort to maintain and enhance his command of the native language. To succeed, indeed, to survive, it must also be recognized as beneficial to the English-speaking majority as well as to the other language groups which form such a significant part of our society. Obviously a valid system of bilingual education demands pervasive change throughout the educational system, in the attitude of society, in government policy, and in the economic priorities of the state.   [More]  Descriptors: Biculturalism, Bilingual Education, Compensatory Education, Educational Attitudes

Rotburg, Iris C. (1982). Federal Policy in Bilingual Education, American Education. This paper focuses on two issues: (1) whether bilingual education programs are the only way to satisfy the Supreme Court decision in Lau v. Nichols and (2) whether research findings clearly indicate that the bilingual approach is the best way to educate language-minority children.   [More]  Descriptors: Academic Achievement, Bilingual Education, Court Litigation, Elementary Secondary Education

Crawford, James (1990). Bilingual Education: The Effectiveness Debate, Equity and Choice. Research in bilingual education remains underdeveloped, and despite 20 years of classroom experience, curricular and methodological refinements, and gains in student achievement, there is continued skepticism about its effectiveness. Contends there has been overreliance on simplistic and ill-designed evaluation research and urges instead basic research in second-language acquisition.

Arnberg, Lenore (1983). Bilingual Education for Preschool Children. A review of ERIC literature, descriptions of 20 preschool bilingual education programs around the world, and information obtained that would be useful in Swedish program development and research are presented. A section giving background on bilingual education looks at types of programs, relationships of programs with external factors, assimilation versus cultural pluralism, the Bilingual Education Act of 1968, the English as a second language approach, and the bilingual-bicultural approach. A section describing the 20 programs outlines their characteristics (language group, goals, language distribution, staff, materials, teacher training, parental involvement, evaluation, and evaluation results), language training programs and methods, teacher training, the relationship of bilingual education and the home (programs emphasizing some parental involvement and recommendations made in the literature for parental involvement), and available resources and resource centers. A final review section looks at the importance of considering background factors in program development, methodological and group factors related to language learning, parental involvement, local versus centralized support for teacher training and materials development, and the importance of program evaluation.

Coballes-Vega, Carmen; And Others (1979). Bilingual Education Paper Series. The Title VII (Bilingual Education) Fellowship Program: A Preliminary Report, Bilingual Education Paper Series. The purpose of this study of the Title VII (Bilingual Education) Fellowship Program was to verify the projected need for bilingual teacher trainers and to assess prior program effectiveness. A 6-item survey instrument was constructed and sent to project directors of 49 institutes of higher education (IHE) that had participated in the fellowship program since its inception in 1975. Replies were received from 44 IHEs. Among the findings it was noted that a significant number of students who did not receive Title VII funds were enrolled in bilingual teacher trainer programs. Most masters and doctoral students were classified as having their disciplinary concentration (major) in bilingual education, although the Office of Bilingual Education had taken the position that bilingual education is an interdisciplinary approach to special educational needs and not an academic discipline. Respondents estimated that 2,000 more bilingual teacher trainers were needed nation wide in the next three years (1979-1982). Funding of doctoral candidates for only 3 years appeared to be inadequate. Masters program graduates may have been more frequently employed as classroom teachers and not as bilingual teacher trainers. It was further noted that some program graduates were unemployed at the time the survey was taken. Descriptors: Bilingual Education, Dropouts, Employment Level, Enrollment Projections
