Individual Learning Programs for Limited-English-Proficient Students: A Handbook for School Personnel.
Parker, Dennis R.
A handbook designed to provide legal, pedagogical, and practical assistance to those responsible for providing a comprehensive educational program for limited-English-proficient (LEP) students in California's public schools is intended for schools with both large and small concentrations of LEP pupils. The first section outlines legal requirements and definitions concerning identification, diagnosis, annual assessment, reclassification, program placement, program content, staffing, parent involvement, submission of plans, and funding. The second section discusses the theory and implications of primary language instruction, instruction in English as a second language, content instruction using a second language, relative language use, and student types and general recommendations. The third section examines the components of an individual learning program (ILP), including diagnostic information, curriculum, objectives, activities, personnel, materials, schedule of instruction, grouping, language use, parent/student consultation, and ILP design. A final section provides summary checklists for documentation, steps to implement an ILP, and instructional procedures. Appendices include diagrams and more detailed treatment of procedures and issues outlined earlier in the text, and some forms. (MSE)
