Shore, Rima; And Others
This is a second-year evaluation report for Project RESCATE, a bilingual education program for 285 Spanish and Haitian Creole speaking students at John Jay High School, Brooklyn, New York. The program provided bilingual instructional services in language and content area courses to Spanish dominant students, ESL and native language instruction to Haitian students, and supportive services (guidance, career development, outreach to families, and staff development) for all participants. The report focuses on changes implemented between the first and second year of this transitional, mainstreaming program, describes the Family Language Program, and provides student achievement data for 1981-82. It is concluded that the program operated very effectively, but that the area of curriculum development needs further attention. (GC)
