Pre-engineering Instruction/Science and Mathematics (Project PRISM): Final Evaluation Report: 1993-94. OER Report.
This document describes a project which served Chinese-speaking students of limited English proficiency in grades 9-12. Participating students received instruction in English as a Second Language, native language arts (NLA), and the content area subjects of mathematics, science, pre-engineering, computer literacy, and social studies. Students were also offered career counseling. Multicultural education was an integral part of programming. The project offered staff development to teachers of participating students as well as to some mainstream teachers and provided field trips and workshops to the parents of participating students. Project PRISM met its objectives for Chinese NLA, content area subjects, attendance, staff development, and parental involvement and is in the process of developing a Chinese bilingual glossary for the engineering course. The following recommendations were made: (1) Continue to seek methods to increase participating students' English proficiency and (2) Acquire or develop Chinese materials for pre-engineering. (MKR)
