This report describes a project undertaken with the San Francisco Unified School District (California) to develop a process and approach to the development of instructional materials for limited-English-speaking students and training and support materials for their teachers. The report outlines the following aspects of the project: the role of the technical team (formation, deliberations, and conclusions); the proposed process for assessing instructional materials needs, including review of past efforts, structure for decision-making, and identification of key issues; specific procedures, tasks, and products, in chart form; the final production of instructional and curriculum materials; and issues to be considered in adoption and institutionalization of the results, implementation policy, and the mechanics of adapting the resulting process/approach to development of materials in other areas of need (other language groups, grade levels, or subjects). A checklist for this adaptation process is provided. (MSE)
