Sarah J. Hale High School Project Become. E.S.E.A. Title VII Final Evaluation Report, 1980-1981.
Shore, Rima, Ed.; And Others
This report describes and evaluates a project that provided instructional and supportive services to Hispanic and Haitian high school students in 1980-81. Project Become at Sarah J. Hale High School in New York City offered social studies, mathematics, and science subjects in Spanish and French Creole, vocational and career courses, and a work study program as well as counseling services and opportunities for parent/community involvement. The report describes the program participants, program structure and organization, implementation of instructional and non-instructional components, and program assessment. Evaluation results indicate that: 1) both Hispanic and Haitian students achieved good rates of mastery of the objectives in a test of English syntax; 2) some gains were made in English reading; 3) bilingual students generally achieved passing rates in the content areas that exceeded the passing rates of mainstream students in comparable classes; 4) passing rates in native language courses and business/vocational courses were generally high; 5) students who took city-wide social studies and reading tests achieved overall passing rates of over 85 percent; and 6) participants' attendance rates were higher than the overall rate for mainstream students. The report concludes with recommendations for program improvement. (Author/MJL)
