Project Pride. Final Evaluation Report 1992-93. OREA Report.
Project PRIDE was an Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title VII-funded project in its fourth year of operation at Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn (New York). In the 1992-93 school year, the project served 251 students of limited English proficiency. Participating students received instruction in English as a second language (ESL), native language arts (NLA), and the content areas of science, mathematics, and social studies. Multicultural education was an integral part of programming. Staff development included instruction in computer use and tuition reimbursement for college courses. The parent component included ESL classes and development of a Parent Advisory Committee. The project met two ESL objectives and all objectives for NLA, literacy instruction, the content areas, cultural pride, dropout prevention, staff development, parent involvement, and material development. Additional staff development for ESL and NLA teachers and additional support for computer-assisted learning were recommended. Three tables and three appendixes present evaluation findings.
