Project BETA (Bilingual Education Talented Academy), a program of the New York City Public Schools, served (in 1990-91) 342 talented and gifted high school students who were classified as limited English proficient. The project provided instruction in English as a Second Language and Native Language Arts, and offered bilingual instruction in content area courses. The project met its objectives for career advisement, staff and curriculum development, and parental involvement. It partially met its attendance objective, but did not meet its objectives for Native Language Arts, English as a Second Language, and content area subjects. An appendix describes data collection and analysis procedures. (JDD)
