Cpmputer Writing Skills for Limited English Proficient Students Project (COMPUGRAFIA.LEP), 1987-88. Evaluation Section Report. OREA Report.
Berney, Tomi D.; Keyes, Jose
The Computer Writing Skills for Limited English Proficient Students Project (COMPUGRAFIA.LEP) was partially implemented in 1987-88, during the first year of a 3-year cycle. It is a staff development program serving 35 bilingual special education classes with 414 limited-English-proficient Hispanic students in 10 elementary schools in the Bronx. Project COMPUGRAFIA.LEP was designed to establish computer centers at all 10 sites but established centers at only 2 sites. The project met its objectives in native language arts, computer skills, and career education at two of the centers, but did not meet its English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL), staff development, curriculum development, or parental involvement objectives. Recommendations include completing installation of the computers, establishing parent ESL classes, organizing a program advisory board, implementing staff development for the classroom teacher, and establishing a system for providing regular information about the program to the parents.
