Berney, Tomi D.; Adelman, Deborah
Project CELSIM (Career Education and Learning Strategies Implementation Model) had as its primary goal the provision of supplemental bilingual special education with a particular emphasis on the acquisition of learning strategies. The learning strategies approach was designed to improve cognitive functions, infuse career awareness, and help students understand the cultural dimensions of the workplace, as well as to identify specific areas of career interest. The program included computer literacy and extracurricular activities such as trips and guest speakers. The project served 137 Spanish-speaking special education students of limited English proficiency. Project CELSIM met its objectives for staff development, counseling, career education, and Native Language Arts, but failed to meet its objectives for content area subjects, attendance, or curriculum development. The English-as-a-Second-Language objective could not be assessed. This evaluation report describes the evaluation methodology, the project's implementation and attainment of objectives, outcomes, and conclusions and recommendation. (JDD)
