Project ESL-SEDAC, 1983-84. E.S.E.A. Title VII Annual Evaluation Report.

During 1983-84, the second of three program cycles of the Title VII English as a Second Language, Special Education Development Approach Curriculum Project (ESL-SEDAC) was fully implemented in the New York City Public Schools. The project provided direct instruction to 260 handicapped limited English proficient students, resource assistance, ongoing individual staff training, staff development, and parent training workshops. All program objectives were fully or partially attained. The proposed criteria for student achievement were met in English-language listening, speaking, reading, and writing, as was the criterion for improvement of the instructional skills of participating classroom teachers. Staff development and parent training workshops were effective and well received, although not as well attended as hoped for. The program curriculum, "Day by Day in English: ESL-SEDAC Daily Living Skills Curriculum Guide," was field tested, revised, and distributed. The following recommendations are offered for continued program effectiveness: (1) continue to provide services to students, parents, and classroom teachers; (2) explore additional ways of documenting pupil achievement; and (3) seek to utilize program, school, and community resources to increase parental participation.
