Asian Newcomer Parent Program: Second Year Report: July 1, 1972--June 30, 1973.
Education Center for Chinese, San Francisco, CA.
The Asian Newcomer Parent Program (ANPP), was intended to provide newly immigrated parents some of the same opportunities as their children to learn English, to understand American mores and lifestyles, and to transcend some of the cultural and communication barriers within the family unit. The project is described in the second-year report, which discusses problems encountered and achievements in relation to the following program goals: (1) to act as a reception center for Asian newcomers, (2) to conduct a program demonstrating the community centered curriculum, (3) to provide ongoing supportive services and articulation with other programs, (4) to provide progress evaluation of parent learners and learners' assessment of program and materials, (5) to expand and refine the curriculum materials to the cycle one and cycle two format, (6) to begin dissemination of the curriculum materials, and (7) to work out plans with the community college district for their absorption of the Program. The project resulted in the development of two volumes of curriculum materials "Everyday English", available through the ANPP. Program data, the two-cycle program operation model for mini-units, testing materials, and test scores are provided. Concluding the document is the 1973 ANPP program evaluation based on a questionnaire administered to 75 participants. (MW)
