The Language Development Project; A Pilot Study in Language Learning. A New York State Urban Aid Project. Mid-Year Report, February 1969.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY.
The Language Development Project is designed to provide assistance to disadvantaged primary-grade children who are learning English as a second language or who use non-standard speech patterns. Materials and special teaching techniques used in the project were originally developed at the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (SEDL) for use with English as a second language learners in San Antonio, Texas. SEDL materials in the areas of "Self-Concept" and "Science" were purchased from the Laboratory, and the children use these special language development materials on a daily basis. In addition, they receive assistance in language development during their other instructional time. This document contains a list of schools and staff involved in the project, a schedule of workshops and visitations, an outline of the duties of the demonstration teachers, and a comprehensive evaluation of The Language Development Program's first year (1967-68). See related documents AL 002 353 and 354 for subsequent reports. (DO)
