Adams, Susan B.; Taylor, Stephaine P.
A project was conducted to (1) inform Kentucky educators of the need for English as a second language (ESL) and bilingual or ESL vocational programs in order to provide equal educational opportunities for students of limited English-speaking ability (LESA); (2) provide teacher training in ESL and bilingual/vocational ESL to interested educators; and (3) establish an information and resource dissemination center to provide educators with information regarding teacher training. In order to achieve these objectives, project staff carried out the following activities: provision of five regional workshops for educators of LESA students; dissemination of four newsletters for educators of LESA students throughout Kentucky; provision of a state conference for educators of LESA students; update of a comprehensive bibliography of vocational materials for LESA students; and provision of free material loan service for these educators. The project yielded the following products: an established resource and technical assistance center to aid educators of LESA students; a bibliography of vocational education materials; and two teacher-training models.
