Abstract

Bilingual or monolingual instruction was provided for 6 weeks to 120 fourth and fifth grade students in physical education classes. Achievement tests in physical education revealed age and sex differences, but the only statistically significant effects of bilingual instruction were an improvement in Spanish vocabulary and a language by instructor interaction. However, anecdotal evidence suggested that other positive changes in the students were also occurring.
