Walton High School, Bilingual Basic Skills through Interdisciplinary Career Orientation. O.E.E. Evaluation Report, 1982-1983.
Villegas, Ana Maria; Schulman, Robert
The program described here provided instruction in ESL and native language studies, as well as bilingual instruction in mathematics, social studies, science, and career education, to 240 Spanish-speaking students of limited English proficiency. The emphasis of this program--in its third and final year at Walton High School (Bronx, New York)--was one of facilitating transition to the educational mainstream through the development of English proficiency. Program activities and services were supported by a combination of Title VII, tax-levy, Chapter 1, and other funds. These services included an instructional and non-instructional component, development of curriculum materials, personal and academic counseling, referrals to outside agencies, family contacts, staff development, and parent involvement activities. Quantitative analysis of student achievement indicated that, with few exceptions, the performance of program students met or surpassed most of the program's criteria. The attendance rate for program students was significantly higher than the rate for the school as a whole. (GC)
