Bilingual Program Project SELL. Final Report.
Project SELL (Spanish/English Language Learning) served 344 limited English speaking (LEP) and 40 non-limited English speaking (non-LEP) students from intermediate and junior high schools in Queens, New York. Non-LEP students acted as role models for LEP students to assist in the improvement of English language skills while LEP students acted as role models in Spanish language and culture classes. Bilingual support personnel were available for LEP students. LEP students who achieved proficiency in English were transferred out of the program while receiving additional academic support services. LEP students were mainstreamed in all subject areas. A team of guidance counselors and family assistants supported pupil adjustment and parent involvement. The program was evaluated through a questionnaire which asked school principals to identify the strengths and weaknesses of Project SELL and through evaluator observations. The evaluator found that the program operated in a superior manner. (MK)
