Guidance Oriented Acquisition of Learning Skills (Project GOALS). Final Evaluation Report, 1992-93. OREA Report.
Guidance Oriented Acquisition of Learning Skills (Project GOALS) was a federally-funded project in three Brooklyn (New York) high schools in its fourth year of operation in 1992-93. It served 312 limited-English-proficient and 57 English-proficient students through instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL), native language arts (NLA) in Mandarin Chinese, Russian, and Spanish, mathematics, science, social studies, and career and vocational subjects. Staff development was an additional project component. The project met its goals for English language skills and English reading achievement, NLA, mathematics, science, social studies, vocational education, career awareness, employment-related courses, and dropout prevention. It also partially met its attendance objective. The major recommendation for program improvement was continuation of successful efforts to improve attendance at one site. (MSE)
