New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Educational Evaluation.
This is an evaluation report of the fifth year of a bilingual career education program, funded under Title VII and carried out at George W. Wingate High School, Brooklyn, New York. The program was designed to offer bilingual instruction and supportive services to the school's Haitian population, with the aim of preparing these students to participate in mainstream social, economic, and political life. This report contains: (1) a description of program objectives; (2) an outline of the instructional component, including descriptions of funding sources and discussions of the English instructional program, the French/Creole instructional program, and mainstream courses; and (3) a review of the program's noninstructional component, including curriculum development, supportive services, staff development, parental/community involvement, extracurricular activities, and student response to the program. Also presented are a description of assessment instruments and procedures and the results of student achievement tests. Program strengths are concluded to have been staff dedication and the development of French curriculum materials. Weaknesses are described as conflict over the amount of English instruction, lack of parent participation, lack of Creole language materials, lack of a bilingual counselor, and poor articulation between the bilingual program and other school departments. Appended to the report are copies of curricular and other materials produced by the program. (GC)
