Shay, Thomas M.; Engdahl, Lilla E. (1976). Extended Degree Programs in the West: Report of a Survey. An exploratory survey yielded basic information about extended degree programs in the 13 WICHE states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming, and Utah. Survey questionnaires were sent to the 441 colleges and universities (including two-year colleges) on the WICHE mailing list; responses were received from 376. Of them, 88 reported that they offer extended degree programs falling under the definition used for the survey, or 20 percent of the higher education institutions in the west. Results are reported by institution level and control, and specific survey responses and problems are analyzed. The questionnaire is included, and programs are listed by state, program category, and type of institution.    [More]  Descriptors: Adult Education, Colleges, Community Colleges, External Degree Programs

Blackburn, Susan Fleming (1976). The Construction, the Implementation, and the Evaluation of a Title I Primary Grade Listening Program. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of a structured listening program on 220 first-, second-, and third-grade students enrolled in Title I schools in the ALbuquerque, New Mexico, public school system. All of the students were given the Educational Testing Service's Cooperative Primary Tests: Listening, and the author's own Listening Rating Scale. Half of the subjects then received one 15-minute listening lesson daily for a period of 20 days. Analysis of posttests revealed that the improvement in listening ability of the overall experimental group was significantly superior to the listening ability of the overall control group, as measured by both instruments. However, no significant improvement was noted in listening ability for the second-grade group, the third-grade group, or for first-through-third-grade girls, as measured by the standardized test alone.

SAMORA, JULIAN (1963). THE EDUCATIONAL STATUS OF A MINORITY. THE EDUCATIONAL SITUATION OF SPANISH-SPEAKING PERSONS OF THE SOUTHWEST IS DISCUSSED. IN 10 OUT OF THE 15 TEXAS METROPOLITAN AREAS, 40 PERCENT OR MORE OF THE SPANISH POPULATION HAS EXPERIENCED LESS THAN 4 YEARS OF SCHOOLING, IN EIGHT OUT OF 10 CALIFORNIA METROPOLITAN AREAS, 20 PERCENT OR MORE ARE IN THE SAME CATEGORY. PERCENTAGES RISE AS ONE PROCEEDS NORTH IN TEXAS, CALIFORNIA, ARIZONA, AND NEW MEXICO. TWO REASONS FOR SUCH A SITUATION ARE OFFERED–DEFAULT OF THE SCHOOL SYSTEM IN PROVIDING EQUALITY OF OPPORTUNITY IN EDUCATION FOR ETHNIC GROUPS, AND LACK OF MOTIVATION FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION ON THE PART OF THE SPANISH-SPEAKING. IT IS HELD THAT EDUCATIONAL CURRICULA SHOULD RECOGNIZE TO A MUCH GREATER EXTENT THE CUTLURAL HERITAGE OF SPANISH-SPEAKING STUDENTS. A BASIC APPROACH TO BARRIERS AND INEQUALITIES CONTRIBUTING TO EARLY DROPOUT SHOULD BE DEVELOPED. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "THEORY INTO PRACTICE," VOLUME 2, JUNE 1963.

Maryland Univ., College Park. Center of Adult Education. (1966). "Trainers of Trainers' Workshops" in Adult Basic Education and Subsequent Grant Activity. Final Report. Sponsored by the Ford Foundation, workshops for trainers of trainers of teachers in adult basic education were held in the summer of 1965 at the Universities of New Mexico, Maryland, and Washington. Administrators, supervisors, university faculty, and teachers (155 in all) were trained; each workshop had its own approach and developed its own evaluation. The University of Maryland was granted supplemental funds from the Ford Foundation to perform a nationwide evaluation of participants several months after the workshops and an evaluation of the trainers and teachers trained by them. In addition, a "Guide for Teacher-Trainers in Adult Basic Education" was published by the National Association for Public School Adult Education (NAPSAE) in early 1966; it is a blending of the materials generated by all three workshops. Unexpended funds under the original workshop project have been transferred to NAPSAE to service an office of coordinator of adult basic education training activities.   [More]  Descriptors: Administrators, Adult Basic Education, College Faculty, Financial Support

Case, Elizabeth J. (1989). Transition to the World of Work. Evaluation Report. The Transition to the World of Work program of the Albuquerque (New Mexico) Public Schools emphasizes developing functional skills and the ability to apply these skills outside the school. The ultimate goals of the program are to help students obtain meaningful, paid employment and function successfully in the community. The program provided systematic vocational, domestic, leisure/recreation, and functional training to 233 students at four secondary side-by-side schools during the 1988-89 school year. The program evaluation found that the majority of parents and service providers perceived that the community-based activities met student needs and had positive impact on students, and that the majority of high-school parents saw a need for parent training in the area of transition to work. Includes six references.   [More]  Descriptors: Daily Living Skills, Disabilities, Education Work Relationship, Job Skills

Anderson, James G.; Safar, Dwight (1969). Equality of Educational Opportunity for Spanish-American and Indian Students in Two Multi-Cultural Communities: An Exploratory Assessment. Educational opportunities and curricular programs offered by 2 school systems serving multicultural communities in New Mexico were examined. Differential pupil performance between Indian, Spanish American and Anglo students was studied by comparing ability test scores, achievement test scores, attendance records, drop out rates and post high school plans. These comparisons were made at the elementary, junior high, and senior high school levels. Findings indicated that the programs offered by the 2 school systems appeared to be ill-suited for Spanish American and Indian students since even those minority children who began school with a comparable level of ability failed to gain as much from their schooling as their Anglo peers. Moreover, a comparison of attendance, drop out rates and post high school plans among the 3 ethnic groups revealed a cumulative loss of faith in the school and its program among students from the 2 minority groups.   [More]  Descriptors: American Indians, Anglo Americans, Cultural Interrelationships, Educational Environment

Texas Univ., Austin. Extension Teaching and Field Service Bureau. (1969). Office of Education, Region 7, Guidance and Counseling Project for Adult Basic Education. Phase 2 Report. This report interprets information from the first phase of a Federally funded adult basic educational guidance and counseling project in Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. Findings and conclusions are presented as to the cultural, psychological, and other characteristics of students; problems encountered in designing guidance and counseling programs; definitions of activities and positions (including administrator, supervisor, counselor, and paraprofessional); guidance and counseling functions of teachers and other personnel; methods of program implementation and administration; educational, social, personal, vocational, and other content in each state program; and principles of guidance and counseling. A team approach to guidance and counseling is outlined.  Evidence suggests that funding and teacher orientation are the main concerns of program leaders, and that adult basic education teachers must become familiar with the sociological, psychological, and physiological factors affecting their students. Also included are memorandums, flow charts, the work breakdown structure, attachments from state reports, and 15 tables and figures.   [More]  Descriptors: Administrative Organization, Adult Basic Education, Charts, Educational Resources
