Irizarry, Ruddie A.; And Others
The Wingate High School Bilingual program served 280 limited English speaking Haitian students with Title VII funds. The program, which included students in grades 9 through 12, was designed to offer bilingual instruction and supportive services with the aim of mainstreaming program participants. Students received English as a Second Language instruction and content instruction in their native language. Additional program components included curriculum development, supportive services, staff development, parental and community involvement, and extra-curricular activities. Students' achievement was assessed using norm and criterion referenced tests. Results indicated that achievement was mixed, with greatest gains seen in English as a Second Language. Recommendations for future program implementation are included. Relevant documents are appended. (MK)
