Limited English Proficient Students and Mathematics and Science Achievement: Strategies for Success Practiced within California Academic Partnership Program Projects.
Stoloff, David L.
Mathematics and science instruction in schools often poses a challenge for limited-English-proficient (LEP) students. This paper discusses how the various curriculum development and assessment projects sponsored by the California Academic Partnership Program (CAPP) implement techniques for learning and teaching mathematics and science for LEP students. The historical development of the CAPP during 1983-1989 is summarized. Three strategies used by the CAPP are described: (1) tutoring and counseling; (2) parental and community involvement; and (3) team-teaching and curriculum development. The importance of further CAPP projects is discussed. Three references are listed. (YP)
