Shore, Rima, Ed.; And Others
The Trilingual Education Learning Environment (TELE) is a basic bilingual instruction program designed to enhance academic and linguistic skills of students with limited English proficiency, and provide supportive services for program participants. This report describes the program as it was implemented during the 1980-81 school year, for third to ninth grade students of Hispanic and Italian background. The program description includes goals, demographic context, participant characteristics, program organization, staffing and activities, and evaluation. Results of evaluation indicate that significant gains were achieved in reading, native language arts, and English; and that attendance rates were mostly higher for the program than for the schools in which TELE programs were located. Recommendations for program improvement are presented. (MJL)
