Keyes, Jose Luis; And Others
The Career Exploration Opportunities for Bilingual Students (C.E.O.B.S.) program at Evander Childs High School in the Bronx, New York City, served 100 ninth and tenth grade Spanish speaking students of limited English proficiency during 1981-82. The project provided instruction in English as a second language and Spanish language skills; bilingual instruction in science, mathematics, and social studies; and career education lessons integrated into all major curriculum areas. This report describes the objectives; student participants; organization; instructional, non-instructional, and career exploration components; and evaluation of the program. Evaluation results indicate that: (1) the program is meeting its objectives; (2) participants demonstrated significant gains in English reading skills, and Spanish reading skills; (3) program participants showed a higher passing rate in biology, history, and mathematics than a comparison group of nonparticipants; and (4) participants had a higher attendance rate than students in the school as a whole. Recommendations for planning future programs are presented. Some documents and materials used in implementing the program are presented in the appendices. (MJL)
