Friedman, Grace Ibanez; And Others
In 1986-87, the New York State Education Department's Bureau of Bilingual Education provided incentive grants to three New York City Board of Education's Office of Bilingual Education projects whose common goal was to improve instructional quality in schools that the state Comprehensive Assessment Report (CAR) had identified as having low student performance levels. The Language Development Support Systems provided instruction in computer literacy and English as a second language (ESL) to two schools' third- and eighth-grade language minority students not entitled to bilingual education. The program also provided in-service training to ESL teachers in the two schools. The Intensive Second Language Development for CAR Schools provided monthly citywide workshops for ESL coordinators, special education coordinators, and curriculum and instructional personnel at CAR schools and, when requested, for classroom teachers. The Curriculum Specialists Project recruited teams of bilingual teachers with curriculum development experience to work part-time to develop Chinese, Spanish, and French/Creole native language arts curricula for grades three to eight. The extent to which each program met its stated objectives and the recommendations for program improvement are outlined. (Author/MSE)
