Berney, Tomi D.; Adelman, Deborah (1990). Career Education and Learning Strategies: Project CELSIM, 1988-89. Evaluation Section Report. OREA Report. Project CELSIM (Career Education and Learning Strategies Implementation Model) had as its primary goal the provision of supplemental bilingual special education with a particular emphasis on the acquisition of learning strategies. The learning strategies approach was designed to improve cognitive functions, infuse career awareness, and help students understand the cultural dimensions of the workplace, as well as to identify specific areas of career interest. The program included computer literacy and extracurricular activities such as trips and guest speakers. The project served 137 Spanish-speaking special education students of limited English proficiency. Project CELSIM met its objectives for staff development, counseling, career education, and Native Language Arts, but failed to meet its objectives for content area subjects, attendance, or curriculum development. The English-as-a-Second-Language objective could not be assessed. This evaluation report describes the evaluation methodology, the project's implementation and attainment of objectives, outcomes, and conclusions and recommendation.   [More]  Descriptors: Bilingual Education, Career Education, Computer Literacy, Counseling Services

Ayala, Armando; Vatsula, John (1971). Area III Valley Intercultural Report; 1970-71 Final Evaluation Report. Evaluation of a bilingual-bicultural education program indicates that significant progress was made in enabling all students to function equally well in both Spanish and English, in providing basic coping skills, and in developing the basis for a pluralistic society. The program included 210 kindergarten and first-grade children consisting of equal numbers of Anglo and Mexican-American children. A bilingual testing instrument was developed in English and in Spanish to assess progress. Five instructional objectives measured indicated that growth was greater for Spanish-surnamed in all categories. Recommendations suggested in-service training for teachers in teaching Spanish concepts in Spanish, hiring a Spanish model resource teacher, review of art work for the portion of the test matching men and animals to environments and review of performance objectives. A copy of the test is included in the appendix.   [More]  Descriptors: Bilingual Education, Bilingual Students, Bilingual Teachers, Evaluation Criteria

Liaw, Shoubee (1977). Needs Assessment for State URRD Funded Programs in Seattle. Report No. 77-3. This report is a 1977 needs assessment for the State Urban, Rural, Racial, Disadvantaged Education Programs (URRD) in Seattle, Washington. URRD programs are defined as state funded efforts which provide special services to students from disadvantaged, minority, or poverty backgrounds. The study provides data on students in the Seattle Public Schools in order to assist administrators and proposal writers in determining concentrations of need in each of five funding areas which include: reentry motivation, preschool education, academic achievement, bilingual/bicultural education, and Indian education. Information regarding dropout rates, number of students served by preschool programs, low achievement, number of students from non-English backgrounds and their ethnic distribution, and the number of American Indian students is presented for each of the relevant funding areas. A summary of findings concludes the paper. Descriptors: American Indian Education, Bilingual Education, Compensatory Education, Disadvantaged Youth

Cotera, Martha P., Comp. (1982). Checklists for Counteracting Race and Sex Bias in Educational Materials. Guidelines and checklists for evaluating and selecting curriculum materials to be used in bilingual/multicultural education programs are presented in this handbook. The central concern is to be able to eliminate materials that contain various forms of racial and sex bias or encourage undesirable race and sex-role stereotyping. The guidelines and checklists, which were selected from information collected in a survey of materials selection criteria being used by government agencies all over the United States, allow the user to identify materials that contain evidence of discrimination; evaluate texts and readers for accuracy of minority portrayals, sex-role stereotyping, and racial stereotyping; and recognize biases in bilingual materials. A bibliography of tools and guidelines for unbiased materials selection and curriculum development is included.   [More]  Descriptors: Bilingual Education, Check Lists, Curriculum Evaluation, Elementary Secondary Education

Berney, Tomi D.; Keyes, Jose (1989). Cpmputer Writing Skills for Limited English Proficient Students Project (COMPUGRAFIA.LEP), 1987-88. Evaluation Section Report. OREA Report. The Computer Writing Skills for Limited English Proficient Students Project (COMPUGRAFIA.LEP) was partially implemented in 1987-88, during the first year of a 3-year cycle. It is a staff development program serving 35 bilingual special education classes with 414 limited-English-proficient Hispanic students in 10 elementary schools in the Bronx. Project COMPUGRAFIA.LEP was designed to establish computer centers at all 10 sites but established centers at only 2 sites. The project met its objectives in native language arts, computer skills, and career education at two of the centers, but did not meet its English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL), staff development, curriculum development, or parental involvement objectives. Recommendations include completing installation of the computers, establishing parent ESL classes, organizing a program advisory board, implementing staff development for the classroom teacher, and establishing a system for providing regular information about the program to the parents.   [More]  Descriptors: Bilingual Education Programs, Career Education, Computer Oriented Programs, Curriculum Development
