Evander Childs High School, Cooperative Work-Study Program for Bilingual Students. O.E.E. Evaluation Report, 1982-83.
Keyes, Jose Luis; Sica, Michael
In its first year, the Cooperative Work-Study Program for Bilingual Students offered full and partial programs of bilingual instruction and career exploration, as well as supportive services, to 160 students at Evander Childs High School, Bronx, New York. Full program students spoke Spanish at home and in the community; partial program participants spoke various native languages including Arabic, Khmer, Chinese, French, Greek, Haitian, Creole, Korean, Persian, Spanish, Urdu, and Vietnamese. The program goal was to develop students' proficiency in English and to increase their career awareness. In addition to English as a second language, native language instruction, and content-area instruction, program students attended career education lessons and activities each semester. Title I and Chapter 1 funds supported these as well as other program activities, including guidance and academic counseling, guest lectures, field trips, staff development, a parent advisory committee, and work experience activities. Analysis of student achievement indicated that both curriculum and career information objectives were met by program participants. (GC)
