New Hampshire Vocational English as a Second Language Project. Final Report.
Flemming, Donald N.; Ankarberg, Mark R.
The purpose of the New Hampshire Vocational English as a Second Language Project was to develop and disseminate a model program to serve limited English speaking individuals in New Hampshire's Vocational Education programs. Phase 1 identified the target population of students in grades K-12 through teacher surveys, and of out-of-school populations through contacts with social and religious organizations, adult education personnel, and key individuals in the community. Selected administrative and instructional personnel in the Nashua School District were interviewed to determine their awareness of the needs of the limited English proficient population and to procure their support for project activities. Phase 2 involved implementation of the model program developed at the end of phase 1. Its five basic components were (1) testing for placement and instructional planning; (2) career counseling for junior and senior high school students; (3) instructional programming for junior and senior high school students; (4) staff development in testing English as a Second Language, cross-cultural career counseling, and modification of English as a Second Language programs to include vocational vocabulary and concepts; and (5) curriculum library development. Phase 3 consisted of dissemination. (Appendixes include instruments for identification of target populations, summary of project activities, and ten student profiles.) (YLB)
