Lezama, Juan A. (1971). Bilingualism, the Mexican American College Student, and His Community. The primary objectives of the Mexican American Project at Sacramento State College are to prepare "agents of change" through the applied social sciences, to work within the culture of the schools, to increase the opportunities for the Mexican American learner, to further the concept of involvement of the Spanish-speaking community in the education of the Mexican American learner, to help assess needs of the Mexican American child, and to develop relevant curriculums based on the language and culture of the child. This paper discusses some of the specific accomplishments and objectives of the project in terms of general bilingual education needs and problems.   [More]  Descriptors: Accountability, Anglo Americans, Biculturalism, Bilingual Education

Hillson, Maurie; And Others (1969). Education and the Urban Community: Schools and the Crisis of the Cities. This selection of 49 articles deals with the crises and conflicts of urban education. Articles discuss the impact of urbanization, social stratification, the effects of urban poverty on black and Puerto Rican families, and the disadvantaged school dropout. Many articles deal with proposed solutions. Among these are readings which discuss the technology necessary to make both curriculum and school organization more relevant to the needs of inner city youth. Curriculum changes proposed include ungraded classes and bilingual education. The school's role of making employment opportunity available, youth alienation, the problems and complexities of federal aid to education, and aspects of school community relationships are also treated.

Implications of these five principles are spelled out. Final discussion of Title V (known as the Bilingual Education Act) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act emphasizes improvement of classroom activities in Pennsylvania.   [More]  Descriptors: Articulation (Education), Bilingual Education, Cooperative Programs, Coordination

Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg. (1972). Guidelines for Educational Programs in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for Children Whose Dominant Language Is Not English.

Grant, Leslie (1995). Testing Bilingual Teachers' Language Proficiency: The Case of Arizona. Many states currently offer bilingual certification or endorsement, encouraging both practicing teachers and prospective teachers to complete their requirements necessary to add this certification on to their regular teaching license. Although these requirements routinely include courses in bilingual education, the "second" language proficiency of the teacher is only sometimes addressed. The purpose of this paper is to discuss proficiency testing of bilingual teachers across the United States. After discussing testing of bilingual teachers in general, a specific measure used in Arizona will be described and evaluated. A sample questionnaire is appended.

Secada, Walter (1992). Evaluating the Mathematics Education of Limited English Proficient Students in a Time of Educational Change. Program evaluation and related research has come a very long way from the quasi-experiment to where it is now seen as having many functions, as being grounded in a range of theoretical positions, and as drawing from a variety of possible methodologies. This paper focuses on evaluating the mathematics programs of limited-English-proficient (LEP) students in a time of educational change. Specific sections address the following: bilingual education program goals; the measurement of goals; the "taken-for-granted" status in current evaluation practice; the mathematics curriculum; mathematics learning and thinking; and mathematics instruction.   [More]  Descriptors: Curriculum Design, Educational Change, Educational Objectives, Elementary Secondary Education
