Cline, Marvin G.; Joyce, John F. (1971). An Evaluation of the EDC Role in the Bilingual Transitional Clusters of the Boston Public Schools. The report documents the early stages and reflections of some of the initial staff of the Boston Bilingual Clusters program designed for public school instruction for Puerto Rican immigrant children. Conceived as a transitional educational experience, the program seeks to effect the diagnosis and remediation of school problems and unmet needs in the system. The problems of establishing a bilingual transitional school and reactions of the staff of the Boston Bilingual Clusters are discussed. Included in the report are remarks by the head teacher, staff, and teacher aides. Appendixes contain assessment instruments, interview questions, and reports on teacher aide workshops.   [More]  Descriptors: Bilingual Education, Bilingual Schools, Bilingual Teacher Aides, Curriculum Development

Ramirez, Alfonso R. (1971). H-200 Plus Five. Project H-200 is a series of English-as-a-second-language (ESL) lessons for the primary grades. To supplement direct language instruction by the Project H-200 classroom teacher, two mechanical aids have been devised. These units are designed to reinforce the language patterns that the children learn in the daily lesson. One type projects a filmstrip which is advanced automatically and inaudibly by the accompanying recording. Stories interesting to small children have been adapted for this machine. Songs and language drills accompany each story. Each story has a Spanish and an English version. The other unit, which plays back a six-second recording on individual, illustrated cards, permits endless repetitions of each recorded utterance but does not guarantee a fixed sequence of illustrations and sounds. Additional activities, songs, and games have also been created. Testing has been modified into a telephone-circuit arrangement with the examiner and tape recorder, the subject, and a third party. This system permits the examiner to ask the subject questions that are perfectly normal and avoids unnatural statements such as "Ask me what my name is."   [More]  Descriptors: Audiovisual Aids, Bilingual Education, Curriculum Development, Elementary Education

Spolsky, Bernard (1972). The Navajo Reading Study: An Illustration of the Scope and Nature of Educational Linguistics. It is the task of educational linguistics to describe and analyze language education in all aspects. With respect to the Navajo Reading Study, it is within the realm of educational linguistics to develop and make available information that will permit the Navaho people, working through their own institutions, to make informed decisions about educational language policy. Two main questions are posed in planning educational policy for Navaho language education: (1) What is the communicative competence of children entering schools? and (2) What is the nature of the language used by children? From consideration of these and related questions, language education planning can be conducted.   [More]  Descriptors: Applied Linguistics, Bilingual Education, Child Language, Diglossia

Bureau of Indian Affairs (Dept. of Interior), Phoenix, AZ. (1971). Report of Final Evaluation, ESEA Title I Projects, Fiscal Year 1971. The report addresses itself to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title I projects operated via the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Phoenix Area, during fiscal 1971. Projects are classified by components in the cognitive, psychomotor, and affective domains (e.g., reading, physical fitness, and dropout reduction). Within each component, project statistics are followed by a discussion of the evaulation results. Because the success of any program is based upon the correction of the problem areas encountered, the chapter containing the summary, conclusions, and recommendations is followed by a discussion of fiscal 1972, which presents specific modifications designed to improve new projects in the Phoenix Area.   [More]  Descriptors: Accountability, Affective Objectives, American Indians, Annual Reports

Robinett, Ralph F.; And Others (1970). Interdisciplinary Oral Language Guide-Primary One. Part Four: Lessons 121-160. Michigan Oral Language Series. This language program guide is designed for teachers of primary age Spanish-background children who have limited control of standard English, the oral language necessary for success in the usual school environment. The materials included comprise Part Four of the "Primary One Guide." The conceptual content for the 40 lessons is drawn principally from three areas: (1) social science, (2) science, and (3) mathematics. Concepts are integrated into a set of oral language lessons which progress sequentially, both conceptually and linguistically. There is a Spanish support activity for each lesson which introduces the conceptual content in the first language. Five review and five evaluation lessons are contained in the guide. An extensive art supplement and a word list covering lessons 1-160 are included. For a companion document see ED 039 815.   [More]  Descriptors: Bilingual Education, Bilingual Students, Concept Formation, Cross Cultural Training

Rivers, Wilga M. (1971). Motivating through Classroom Techniques. Motivation is the normal state of the individual, and the language teacher is responsible for identifying the individual nature of the student's motivation and directing it through his design of learning activities. The personal goals of the students should be kept in mind; the subject matter should be what interests the student, and the characteristics of the students must be considered. The teacher should use imagination in curriculum planning and should adapt and adjust the curriculum to his own students. The language teacher must know how to use the motivation which already exists to increase the student's knowledge of the new language.   [More]  Descriptors: Behavioral Objectives, Bilingual Education, Classroom Techniques, Communication (Thought Transfer)

Martinez, Emiliano; and Others (1972). Lee y trabaja: Libro de lectura 2, nivel 1 (Read and Work: Reader 2, Level 1). This reading textbook, the second of a series, is an anthology of stories designed to relate to the natural interest of the elementary school child. On this level the number of words to memorize is increased (on the average, four per unit) while at the same time, the study of word variants is introduced to begin analysis exercises based on the configuration of each. The exercises of auditory discrimination are completed with the visual recognition of normal endings–diminutives, verbs, etc. Stress is paid to the intonation and writing of the letters. The tests which students must read increase in complexity–from the phrase to the sentence. The book contains many color illustrations.

Vogler, William H.; And Others (1971). 1970-71 Evaluation Report of ESEA (Title III) Inner City Education Project. In this evaluation report, considerable analysis is devoted to the definition of program development in each of the three years of funding, as well as an evaluation of third year objectives attainment. Emphases include project history prior to 1970-71 and context definition, project inputs, fiscal and staff resources, and terminal product evaluation of the 1970-71 (final) funding year. Results of terminal evaluation indicate that: (1) the Inner City Project Staff, by the end of the second year, had increased parent-school-community interaction and had supplemented district services in educational areas found deficient for adequate Inner City pupil instruction and guidance; (2) the three-year Inner City Project was instrumental in sustaining high pupil-school-community cooperation during the 1970-71 year; (3) project efforts made positive changes in parent involvement, English acquisition by pupils whose native language was Spanish, unexcused absences, health absences, and teacher empathy toward their pupils; and, (4) project criterion levels fell short of expectations in the areas of secondary unexcused absences, health absences, and reading and mathematics achievement. Conclusions and recommendations for the San Diego City Schools and other School Districts are provided, as well as appendices.   [More]  Descriptors: Bilingual Education, Career Planning, Community Involvement, Community Role
