Project CRIP (Comprehensive Russian Instructional Program) in its first year provided career orientation and support services to 460 Russian-speaking students of limited English proficiency at three public and four private high schools in Brooklyn and Queens, New York. The primary project goal was to help students to plan and prepare for future careers. Stated objectives included student achievement in bilingual skills classes, work experience in summer internships, regular meetings with the career advisor for counseling, visits to business offices, and workshops involving representatives of various businesses and occupations. The specific instructional program available to Project CRIP participants varied from site to site, but included English as a second language and native language instruction and content-area instruction. The project's career awareness component included counseling, lectures, presentations by outside speakers, and informal no-credit classes in computer programing, career education, and office skills. Staff development activities and encouragement of parent participation also took place under Project CRIP. Students were assessed in English language development; growth in their mastery of the native language; mathematics, science, social studies, and business courses; and attendance. Results varied considerably among school sites. (GC)
