Asian Newcomer Parent Program: Third (Final) Year Report: July 1, 1973--August 15, 1974.
Education Center for Chinese, San Francisco, CA.
The Asian Newcomer Parent Program (ANPP), an experimental project initiated by the Education Center for Chinese (ECC) in 1971, 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 transcent some of the cultural and communication barriers within the family unit. The third-year (final) report briefly reviews the total program before discussing the third year effort which was spent mainly in further development of English as a Second Language (ESL) materials while maintaining the operation of demonstration classes and a reception center. (The curriculum materials, entitled "Everyday English," include teacher and student guides and are available through the ANPP.) The final section reviews the program's evaluative survey of 85 participants and examines the ANPP's efforts, shortcomings, and successes in meeting the needs of the Asian adult newcomers it served. The survey instrument, program descriptions, and unsolicited testimonials are appended. (MW)
