Torres, Judith A.; And Others
Project ELITES provides bilingual education to 307 Spanish-speaking, Arabic-speaking, and Greek-speaking students at Fort Hamilton High School, Brooklyn, New York. Project ELITES's philosophy is to mainstream students after two years of participation. The program's individualized approach is obtained through a 3-tiered instructional format: gifted, career/occupational, and low literacy. This report evaluates the instructional component, staff development activities, and materials development for 1981-82, the program's second year of operation. Data presented indicate that most of the program's English language objectives were met by participating students. Further, many participants performed well in mathematics, science, and social studies courses. Passing rates in Fall term business and vocational education were lower than the mainstream passing rates for Spanish and Arabic program students, but Greek students had higher passing rates. In the Spring term, passing rates improved for all groups of program participants. The average attendance rate for program students was significantly higher than the mainstream attendance rates. (GC)
