Computer-Assisted Bilingual/Bicultural Multiskills Project, 1987-1988. OREA Report.
Berney, Tomi D.; Carey, Cecilia
The Computer-Assisted Bilingual/Bicultural Multiskills Project completed its first year of an extension grant. The program used computerized and non-computerized instruction to help 109 native speakers of Haitian Creole/French and Spanish, most of whom were recent immigrants, develop English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) native language, and content area skills for mainstreaming and continued academic success. Analysis of student achievement data indicate that the program met its objectives in ESL, native language arts, the content areas (biology, social studies, mathematics, American government, and United States history), and attendance. Staff development activities were offered. Parent involvement activities were also offered but received little response. It is recommended that the progam provide transportation and child care for parents who are members of the parent advisory commmittee in order to increase committee participation. (MSE)
