Friedman, Grace Ibanez; And Others
In 1986-87, the New York City Staff Development Program for Bilingual/English as a Second Language (ESL) Kindergarten through Ninth-Grade Teachers and Supervisors provided in-service training in bilingual education theory, policy, and practice to about 500 teachers and administrators serving limited-English-proficient (LEP) students in the city's 32 community school districts. Each participant received about 12 hours of training in a series of sessions geared to supervisors and coordinators, experienced teachers, or new teachers. Workshops were offered in different locations. The program evaluation gathered information about participant characteristics, training, and experience. The program met and surpassed its objectives in attendance rates and participant satisfaction. Recommendations for program improvement include follow-up conferences, and specialized training for teachers in other than Spanish bilingual programs. (Author/MSE)
