Berney, Tomi D.; Alvarez, Rosalyn
This project provided 360 students at South Bronx High School (New York) with instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL); Native Language Arts (NLA); the bilingual content area subjects of mathematics, science, and social studies; and computer literacy. The goal of the project was to provide instructional and support services to Spanish-speaking students of limited English proficiency (LEP). The project met its ESL objectives that students would show significant gains on the Language Assessment Battery (LAB), and that at least 70 percent of participating students would pass their ESL and ESL reading courses each semester. One of two NLA objectives was met as well as objectives for parental involvement and staff and curriculum development. Students met the objective of making significant gains in the computer literacy test both semesters. Lack of data prevented OREA from determining whether the project had met its second NLA objective. The project failed to meet its content area subject objective. (GLR)
