Chinese Bilingual Career Awareness Program. Project CAP, 1987-88. OREA Report.
Berney, Tomi D.; Nadler, Harvey
In its second year (1987-88) of funding (part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title VII), the Chinese Bilingual Career Awareness program (Project CAP) served 258 native Chinese-speaking, limited-English-proficient (LEP) students and 24 non-LEP students at two junior high schools in New York City. The project provided instruction in English as a second language (ESL), bilingual instruction in content areas (mathematics, science, social studies, and computer literacy), and career awareness activities. It also provided counseling, tutoring, extracurricular activities, staff development, and parent involvement activities. Field trips and guest lecturers supplemented classroom activities. The project was highly successful in achieving its stated instructional and noninstructional objectives. Program strengths included the numerous field trips, high level of parent participation, and career awareness instruction. Its only weakness was lack of native language instruction in one school. The one recommendation for program improvement was the relocation of career awareness classes at one school to avoid noise distraction. (MSE)
