Evaluating bilingual education : a Canadian case study by Merrill Swain( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A decade of research on immersion programs in Ontario is synthesized. The immersion programs studied over this period include three major alternatives: early total French immersion, early partial French immersion, and late partial French immersion. The programs all serve an English speaking students population, devote at least one half of each school day to instruction in French, and use the same curriculum content as the regular English program. The specific programs included in this synthesis are described and their effects on French and English language skills, academic outcomes, and social psychological adjustment are summarized. Questions raised by the research involve effective teaching strategies and research design. Overall, the three types of French immersion programs have been successful in promoting advanced French language skills. This success is attributable in part to parental involvement, optional participation, positive attitudes toward French, and the majority group membership of the participants. A bibliography includes a comprehensive listing of reports, articles, and books which relate to immersion education in Canada and the United States. (RW)

Double cohort study : phase 4 report for the Ontario Ministry of Education by Alan J. C King( )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the second phase of a study that focusses on the impact of Ontario's restructured secondary school program on student applications to universities & colleges in 2003. The study involves tracing students enrolled in grade 9 in Ontario secondary schools in 1998, 1999, & 2000 through an analysis of their marks, credits obtained, and responses to surveys administered in the school years 2000/01 & 2001/02. After an introduction on the research, part 2 describes the school sample & the students who participated in the surveys. Part 3 establishes a historical context for the double cohort formed due to elimination of grade 13 with an estimate of the flow of students through from grade 9 to post-secondary destinations. Part 4 addresses aspects of the implementation of the reorganized program including enrollments, factors influencing course selection & career aspirations, course offerings & selection, school-to-work experiences, course delivery, and student achievement. Part 5 presents the results for the francophone students involved in the surveys from the French school sample. Part 6 discusses the role that external factors play in students' post-secondary planning. The final two parts analyze college & university applications & registrations and estimate the need for enrollments in 2003. Appendices include tabulations of the survey data

The report includes a description of the programs and information on the characteristics of some other bilingual education programs found in Ontario. In addition, the following information is provided: (1) discussion of the specific research questions and the research design; (2) presentation of the evaluation findings concerning the linguistic effects; (3) presentation of the findings on the academic effects; and (4) discussion of some social and psychological dimensions of French immersion programs.

Sex roles : biological and cultural interactions as found in social science research and Ontario educational media by Linda Fischer( Book )

12 editions published between 1976 and 1979 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study was to answer the following questions: (1) In what areas are sex differences supported by research? (2) To what extent are these sex differences caused by biological differences, by differences in socialization, or by differing opportunities? (3) In what way are educators reinforcing sex role stereotypes? In order to determine the influence of educators in the sex role socialization process, the social science literature on the topic was reviewed, and original research was done on the content of textbooks in Ontario. The other two questions were answered through reviews of recent literature. This study concludes that while some sex differences were found in cognitive functioning, aptitudes, and preferences, many of these were not statistically supported until ages 10, 11, and some not until early adolescence. This suggests that schools may be influencing this development. The evidence of stereotyping done by teachers is slight and contradictory; however, evidence does exist for stereotyped content in books and other educational media. In sum, there are many widely held beliefs about sex differences which are not consistently supported by evidence. Annotated bibliographies are included. (Author/JK)
