Project GET SET, 1987-88. OREA Evaluation Report.
Berney, Tomi D.; Friedman, Grace Ibanez
In its second extension year following a 3-year federal funding cycle, Project GET SET served 163 junior high school students of limited ability in both English and Spanish at two Bronx junior high schools. The project's aim was to reinforce English and native language skills and to offer students personal counseling, informative programs that would involve their parents, and career guidance. Students also worked with a part-time tutor. The program met its proposed objectives for native language development, and the noninstructional objectives were met for career seminars, parent programs, and staff training and development. Project GET SET only partially achieved the objectives in Englsih language development and curriculum material preparation. The project exposed students to a variety of traditional and nontraditional career opportunities through a range of bilingual reference works, field trips, and lecture programs. Parents could participate in four workshops, and teachers and guidance counselors each attended three workshops. Recommendations for improvement include completion of the educational curriculum materials, and training mainstream teachers in the project's instructional methods. (MSE)
