Project Recurso, 1989-1990. Final Evaluation Report. OREA Report.
This report presents final (fifth year) results of Project Recurso, a federally funded project which provided 147 Spanish-speaking special education students (grades 3-5) in 12 New York City schools with instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL), Native Language Arts (NLA), and bilingual content area subjects. The project also provided staff development and parental involvement activities. Objectives for staff and curriculum development as well as for parental involvement were fully met. The project did not meet the two content area objectives or two of the ESL objectives. Additionally, no data were available to assess two other ESL or three NLA objectives. The program's strengths were its ability to train bilingual special education professionals and offer relevant activities for parental involvement. The report recommends that the project's curriculum materials be disseminated to other bilingual special education programs. (DB)
