Project ESL-SEDAC. O.E.E. Annual Evaluation Report, E.S.E.A. Title VII. 1982-83.
Tobias, Robert; And Others
During 1982-83, the first of three projected program cycles, the Title VII English as a Second Language, Special Education Developmental Approach Curriculum Project (ESL-SEDAC) provided direct instruction to 246 handicapped limited English proficient students in schools throughout New York City. Resource assistance, staff development, and parent training activities were also part of the program. Despite some delays in implementation, the project was initiated successfully, and all program objectives were fully or partially attained. The proposed criteria for student achievement were met in English language listening, speaking, reading, and writing; and responses on participant questionnaires indicated that the staff development workshops were effective and well received. The program also made progress toward full attainment of its parent involvement objective. Finally, the program compiled and field-tested a comprehensive curriculum, "Day by Day in English: An ESL-SEDAC Daily Living Skills Curriculum Guide," which will be printed and ready for distribution early in the 1983-84 cycle. The following recommendations are offered for continued program effectiveness: (1) continue to provide services to students, parents, and classroom teachers; and (2) consider conducting an assessment of training needs of staff, depending on their prior training, experience, and the language backgrounds of their students.
