Page 1 of 12 The Coral Way Bilin gual Experiment Digital Collection (1961 to 1966) I. Project Narrative Project Description The Coral Way Bilingual Experiment Digital Collection (19611966) project team, in partnership with the University of Florida College of Education and the University of Ariz ona Libraries requests $ 4, 229 to expand the Coral Way Bilingual Elementary School digital collection that is now housed both at the University of Arizona and the University of Florida. The project team plans to 1) add newly donated materials and oral histories and 2) promote the collection to a wider audience through social media and an online exhibit The enhanced digital collection will allow students, faculty, educators, researchers and the general public direc t access to primary source material and previously unavailable information about the first federally funded dual language (English/Spanish) emersion program in the United States located in Miami, FL The original digital collection the Coral Way Bilingual Elementary School was created by renowned international bilingual education researcher, Dr. Richard Ruiz and Bess de Farber at the University of Arizona Libraries The original collection contains 26 historical and official documents, working papers, and correspondence, 197 photographs, 6 pieced of memorabilia (including a School Days scrapbook, a teacher of the year application, and 4 progress reports), and 14 oral histories with transcriptions collected from student alumni, teachers, and administrators from th is first dual language emersion program In the Fall 201 8 se mester, the complete original digital collection was shared with the University of Florida The collection was absorbed with the help of Digital Support Services and will be made available in the UFDC as a subcollection within the Florida History & Herit age Collection as part of this project In order to expand the collection, documents and memorabilia that were recently donated to the L ibraries will be analyzed, evaluated for redact ion, and, if selected, digitized in the appropriate formats The recently donated material includes, 30 documents (including letters, personnel and pupil lists, daily schedules, and memos), 1 scrapbook from an alumnus containing 15 report cards, certificates and awards, and school pictures, and 5 additional photographs. N ew pieces will be added as the pr oject team contact s alumni teachers, administrators, and others associated with the c ollection. Additionally, to achieve the goals of the project the team plans to complete twelve oral histories recordings and transcriptions with current and past Coral W ay teachers alumni from the 1961 1966 classes, and current bilingual education experts affiliated with the Coral Way School in Florida. A student will be employed to sca n and upload the new documents and create new and/or enhance metadata. Contracts will be made with two transcription services to transcribe the oral histories. Once completed, the digitized documents, memorabilia, and oral histories with transcription, will be added to the digital collection in the UFDC. At a minimum t he new collection will be promoted through a presentation at the National Association for Bilingual Education (NABE) Conference planned for March, 2019, on the UF Education Librarys social media platforms and via an online exhibit. Significance The Coral Way Collection is unique. Coral Way Elementary school was the first two way, dual language program in the United States. It began in 1962 as an experiment with both native English and native Spanish speaking children following the Cuban refugee crisis. Educators in the neighborhood recognized at the time that Cuban children needed instruction in Spanish, their first language, while learning English. The contributions of Coral Way are farreaching. Since its establishment as an experiment, more than 1,000 programs have been developed and are currently in existence across the US. This digital collection documents the early contributions of t he school to bilingual education in the US. In addition, the University of Florida is the premier land grant research institution for the state of Florida. This project will not only inform people in the state but will also document Floridas contribution to bilingual education across the US.
Page 2 of 12 The impetus for the creation of original Coral Way Bilingual Elementary School digital collection came when Dr. Ruiz met Bess de Farber the George A. Smathers Libraries grant manager and Coral Way class of 1967 alum nus Through this relationship he discovered that the history of the Coral Way program in the bilingual education literature was incorrect and sought to rectify a variety of fact s. As an expert in the field, Dr. Ruiz confirmed through the oral histories fr om former students, teachers, and administrators that how Coral Way was represented in the historical literature was false and included many misconceptions regarding the native English speaking students not being held accountable for their acquisition of Spanish throughout the program, according to de Farber. He had planned to write extensively on the subject and once Bess de Farber was recruited to the University of Florida it was his intent to transfer the collection to U F, but he died suddenly in 2015 b efore this process could begi n. The project team now aims not only to fulfill Dr. Ruizs wishes but to add more important primary source material to the collection However, as time passes, those people vital to understanding the impacts of the Coral Way program may forget their stories and/or pass away. The project team intends to quickly document the early contributions of the program and to collect a dozen additional oral histories. The Coral Way Bilingual Experiment Digital Collection is an important resource for students, faculty, educators, researchers, and the general public. Specifically, at the University of Florida t he College of Education, School of Teaching and Learning has faculty dedicated to Bilingual Education. The faculty offer s a Masters EdD, and PhD in ESOL/Bilingual Education. In addition, Dr. Maria Coady program coordinator for ESOL/Bilingual Education and appointed the Irving and Rose Fien Endowed Professor, is in the process this fall of creating a Florida Bilingual Education website with 27 graduate students in her course, FLE6165 Bilingual Bicultural education. As a program area, ESOL/Bilingual Education has more than 24 PhD students and approximately 40 Masters degree students at various stages of the program. The program area has three full time tenured or tenure track faculty and one full time clinical faculty. Dr. Coady also plans to write and publish a book on the Coral Way Bilingual Experiment, picking up where Dr. Ruiz left off, that would not be possible were it not for this digital collection. In addition to its importance to the UF College of Education, t his project will also result in the Education Librarys second digital collection of primary materials in the UFDC, supporting the Libraries strategic direction s of di gital and digitized collections and transformative collaboration ( George A. Smathers Libraries Strategic Directions ). Once the additional records are complete and added to the UFDC Coral Way Bilingual Experiment Digital Collection (1961 to 1966) the projec t team will s hare the new records with the University of Arizona librarie s to keep both collections whole. After the completion of this project, the team plans to continue enhancing the digital collection with additional materials and oral histories and in a future phase would include a translation of all materials into Spanish to create a completely bilingual collection. Project Comparison Digital collections and oral histories with transcription projects are common at academic institution s. However, the unique assembly of the variety of documents, school memorabilia, and oral histories together into one collection about the first dual language emersion school in the United States is one of a kind. The Merici Academic Collection housed in the University of Miami Libraries Digital Collection has the most similarities to The Coral Way Bilingual Experiment Digital Collection (1961 to 1966) Merici Academy was a private, Catholic, bilingua l elementary and secondary school for girls located in Havana, Cuba where classes were taught in the native Spanish and English from 1941 to 1961 when the revolution occurred. The Merici Academy Collection contains photographs and school memorabilia, altho ugh it lacks the oral history component Resources Needed/Impacts The project team requests funds to employee two transcriptionists and an OPS student hire. Barbara Jardee, a transcriptionist, worked on the previous oral histories collected for the Coral Way Elementary digital
Page 3 of 12 collection at the University of Arizona and w ill be enlisted to transcribe eight of the new oral histories, especially any with difficult to understand audio and those conducted through Zoom /online or phone. The remaining four interviews will be transcribed through TSOLife an online transcript ion service with which the team plans to experiment. The TSOLife service was suggested by Dean Judith Russell as an option. The OPS student hire will be tasked with two duties, the first being improving the metadata of the current collection and creating metadata for the new oral histories and the second, managing the marketing and promotion of the collection and online exhibit through the social media platforms. Latin American and Carib bean Special Collections Librarian Margarita Vargas Betancourt will obtain the deed of gift for the newly donated items, then oversee the redaction and digitization of these items, and create a finding aid for the collection. Bess de Farber will be identifying, locating, and communicate with perspective interviewees from the Coral Way 1961 1966 classes. She will assist with the conducting of the new oral history interviews and gathering additional primary materials Dr. Maria Coady will oversee the data collection (oral histories) and data analysis (oral histories, document and archival analysis) of the project and is the PI on an IRB approved study. In addition, she is colleagues and in contact with faculty across the State of Florida who are affiliated with education in South Florida (at FIU, FAU, University of Miami) who will be presenting at the NABE conference with her in March on Floridas bilingual education. Support for Dr. Coadys travel to Miami to visit the Coral Way School (formerly called Coral Way Elementary) has come from the UF Center for Latin American Studies, as well as Dr. Coadys annual travel funds from the School of Teaching and Learning. All funding will be acknowledged in reports, papers, and the book to be written by Dr. Coady called The Coral Way Experiment The project PI will supervise, train, and support the OPS student hire, review the completed transcriptions and metadata, and design the online exhibit. The PI will collaborate with Margarita Vargas Betancourt, Dr. M aria Coady, and Bess de Farber throughout the project. Chelsea Dinsmore, Director of Digital Support Services, Sarah Moczygemba, Social Media Manager, and Lourdes SantamaraWheeler, Exhibits Coordinator, will work as consultants with minimal time commitment.

There should be no copyright issues because of the vetting and redacting that will occur based on FERPA laws which will happen before the materials are uploaded. T he IRB permission will be received prior to the oral history interview s and the up loading of items. The success of this project will be measured upon the completion of twelve new oral histories with accurate transcriptions, complete metadata records for th e digital objects when possible, and usage of the collection. A usage anal ysis will be done comp aring social media engagement with Coral Way post s and the usage of the digital collection. At the end of the project year our goal is to have a minimum of 3000 views/ uses of the materials in the digital collection. Financial Implications This project does not require the purchase of any equipment or supplies. The transferring of the University of Arizona digital files was done through Dropbox which incurred no cost. Dr. Maria Coady purchased a digital recorder to conduct the in person oral histories through her own funding, while the long distance interviews will be recorded using Zoom or phone The Center for Latin American Studies has also contributed funding for Dr. Coady to travel to Miami and the Coral Way School. She will be in Miami from Thursday, October 11 through Sunday, October 15, 2018 and will meet with Coral Way faculty, alumnae, principal and educational administrators.

Page 5 of 12 II. Budget Narrative The project team requests $ 4,229 in funding to employee two transcriptionists at approximately $ 1,695 and an OPS student hire at approximately $2 534 The first transcriptionist, Barbara Jardee, worked on the previous oral histories collected for the University of Arizona Coral Way Elementary dig ital collection. Her fee is $3.50 per page of transcription which covers the transcription and spell check. To determi ne how many billable pages the recordings are likely to produce she takes the number of minu tes of recording and divide s by 2 (ex. 60 minutes, divided by 2, equals approximately 30 billable pages ) then add s 25 percent to the estimates to cover if the interviewee is excited, or extremely knowledgeable about their subject, which usually produces fa ster speech patterns and more pages per minute Fo r this project, Ms. Jardee will be enlisted to transcribe eight of the new oral histories, especially any with difficult to understand audio and those conducted through Zoom or phone. Using her formula, the estimated cost of her services would be $ 1,575. (8 a nticipate d in terviews, each l asting approximately 90 minutes, 8 x 90 = 720 minutes, 720 divided by 2 = 360 approximate billable pages Add 25 percent to cover exci ted/knowledgeable narrators. 360 + 25% = 450 estimated billable pages. 450 x $ 3.50 = $ 1,575) The remaining four interviews will be transcribed through TSOLife, an online transcription service with which the team would like to experiment. The TSOLife service was suggested by Dean Judith Russell as an option. The clearest audio files and those with Spanish language included will be selected for this transcription service since they have not been used before but do offer transcription of other languages The price for TSOLife transcription is $15 per interview hour, regardless of language. Therefore, 4 interviews with a maximum of 2 hours each = $120 for the project budget. The OPS student would be hired at a rate of $15 per hour for up to 160 hours. Their tasks will include improving the metadata of the current collection and creating metadata for the new oral histories and additional documents and memorabilia and managing the marketing and promotion of the collection and online exhibit on social media. PI Kester will hire, supervise, train, and su pport the OPS student hire. PI Kester (5% effort) will supervise, train, and support the OPS student hire, review the completed transcriptions and metadata, and design the online exhibit. Margarita Vargas Betancourt (1% effort for six months) will obtain t he deed of gift for the newly donated items, then oversee the redaction and digitization of these items, and create a finding aid for the collection. Bess de Farber (1% effort) will identify, locate, and communicate with perspective interviewees from the C oral Way 1961 1966 classes. She will assist with the conducting of new oral history interviews, acquiring additional primary materials, and the creation of metadata. Chelsea Dinsmore, Sarah Moczygemba, and Lourdes SantamaraWheeler will work as consultant s with a minimal time commitment.

From: Kester,Brittany N To: de Farber, Bess Gail Subject: Fw: Message of Commitment for Coral Way Elementary School Digital Collection Project Date: Monday, October 15, 2018 1:41:40 PM From: de Farber, Bess Gail Sent: Monday, October 8, 2018 2:53:37 PM To: Kester,Brittany N Subject: Message of Commitment for Coral Way Elementary School Digital Collection Project Dear Brittany, It is a pleasure to write this message of commitment for my participation in the Coral Way Bilingual Experiment School Digital Collection project. Having been in first grade when the program started, I only learned through conversations with Dr. Ruiz that the bilingual program I participated in was the catalyst for validating immersion bilingual education methods in the US and beyond. Our partnership at the University of Arizona created the digital collection which has been available yet dormant since 2008 when I moved to Gainesville. There are more former students, teachers and administrators that can be located now due to the digitization of Floridas newspapers which have already yielded one new alumnus who referred me to another potential interviewee. Beyond contributing documented materials to the UF collection, my role will be to search for other alumni, provide a refreshed oral history of my experiences, provide context for the collection, colead interviews in partnership with the project team, and promote the collection through contacts and presentations with the project team. This project has the potential for bringing new attention to Floridas contribution to bilingual education, for setting the history books straight on its contributions, and for giving voice to an aging generation which has little knowledge of these contributions.

October 17, 2018 Re: Coral Way Archives Digital Collection To Whom It May Concern: I am writing this letter of support for the establishment and expansion of the Digital Collection at UF. The purpose of the digital collection is to chronicle the history of the first bilingual school in modern times in the country. As a researcher, teacher educator, and advocate of bilingual education in the US who was directly involved with Coral Way during my ten years as an elected member of the Dade County Scho ol Board. I am excited about the collaboration on this unique, timely, and important work. The significance of the school's legacy cannot be overstated. In 1962, the Coral Way Elementary School was launched as an educational experiment that changed the l andscape of bilingual education in the United States forever. Coral Way was not only a social experiment but also a political movement that was a direct response to more than 70,000 Cuban children who entered Florida during the era of the Cuban Missile Cri sis after 1959, more than 14,000 of whom were sent on airplanes by the parents, who remained behind in Cuba. The education model established at Coral Way has been replicated at hundreds of schools across the country and has influenced the development of si milar programs in other countries. I believe that the work being conducted on the Coral Way Digital Collection will make a significant contribution to the field of bilingual education and to the historical knowledge base of the State of Florida. If you h ave any questions about this letter or work, please do not hesitate to contact me. Sincerely yours, Rosa CastroFeinberg, Ph.D. Associate Professor (Retired) Florida International University

GMC SOP Initial Review and Q uestions 1. Who will be responsible for and how will Quality Control occur for reviewing the accuracy of the transcriptions? PI Kester will review the accuracy of the transcriptions PI Kester and project t eam member s Coady and de Farber plan to listen to the audio recordings to create metadata for the oral histories 2. Will the metadata be bilingual? If not, what are the planned provisions for adding Spanish? Not currently, just like offering the full transcriptions in Spanish thi s would be a consideration for a possible phase 2 project proposal 3. How will interviewees be selected for interviews? Project team members d e Farber and Coady are recommendin g, selecting and contacting the candidates to secure commitments for oral histor y interviews. The candidate list reflect s a combination of Coral Way Elementary alumni and educational leaders in Miami Dade County that have worked at or are knowledgeable about Coral Way Elementarys history and evolution. 4. Can you provide a draft list of individuals being considered for interviews? Susana Martin Current Coral Way Bilingual Teacher ReAndra T. Jordan Current Coral Way Principal Gabriel Baldi Current 4th Grade Teacher Marlene Figueroa Current Coral Way Gifted Teacher Alex Reisco Current Coral Way Music Teacher Migdania Vega Principal of C oral Way Elementary 19922003 Lourdes Rovira affiliated with Coral Way & Miami Dade School District Bilingual Education Coordinator Melba Brito worked in Miami Dade School District Bilingual Education Department Tomasita Ortiz worked in Miami Dade School District Bilingual Education Department Rosa Castro Fienberg Florida International University College of Education Emeritus Professor, Retired Marta Aleida Hernandez Recommended to Dr. Coady, affiliated with Coral Way/Bilingual Education but exact title unknown Josie Companione Recommended to Dr. Coady, affiliated with Coral Way/Bilingual Education but exact title unknown Diana Morales Alumnus Lourdes Lopez Alumnus Michal Medvin ( Hobar) Alumnus (Beverly Hills, California) Amy Porter Alumnus (Paris France)

Future automated transcriptions to be completed in the Libraries are another option. 5. What is the plan for capturing additional oral history interviews at the conclusion of the SOP grant period? The project team is interested in continuing to conduct oral histories for anot her year after the SOP period. It is anticipated that o nce the digital archiv e is updated and promoted on social media and through the online exhibit that more people will come forward to be interviewed The project team is considering apply ing for additional grant monies for the second year of recording oral histories as well as the translation of both the transcriptions and metadata into Spanish (phase 2). The Pew Public Education Fund has expressed interest in the project. The Ford Foundation (FF) was the original sponsor of the planning and evaluation process during the initial six years of the "Coral Way Experiment." The project team has been in touch with FF in an effort to int roduce the research project and gain access to microform files of the grant applica tion and reports submitted in the 1960s. There may be an opportunity to request additional funding for future phases from FF. During the SOP grant period, the project team will offer the interviewees the opportunity to donate the cost of the transcription of their oral history to the Libraries. 6. How much (or what percentage of) Spanish language is anticipated to be included in the interviews?
This is unknown, the interviews will all be conducted in English but the project team wanted to have a transcription option that would allow for Spanish in case an interviewee used Spanish terms during their interviews. Project team member Coady has alread y completed a few of these new interviews and she stated, As happens with bilinguals, we use two languages in the interviews. However, the majority of the conversations were in English, because I knew we would be transcribing.
