Chinese, Career Education, and Computer Education (Project Three Cs). Community School District 2, Manhattan Transitional Bilingual Education Program, 1991-92. Final Evaluation Profile. OREA Report.
Project Three Cs, which admitted 285 students in grades 7 through 9, was designed to meet the needs of recent immigrants (279 of whom were Chinese) of limited English proficiency. The New York City program provides computer-assested instruction (CCAI) of limited English as a Second Language (ESL), content areas, and career development. The project trained staff in computer techniques for classroom use and provided individualized instruction to students and staff. Parents visited the computer laboratory throughout the year to observe the child's progress and to use the computers themselves. The project carried out the activities in its design. Computer assisted instruction was incorporated into all subject areas, and valuable job skills were also incorporated. Project directors reported that the staff development component of the project was exceptional, and that staff became computer literate as a result of the training offered. The project also met its objectives for parent participation. One limitation was that the project could not serve all the students who wanted to participate. Two appendixes describe data collection and analysis and instructional materials. (SLD)
