Higher Achievement and Improvement through Instruction with Computers and Scholarly Transition and Resource Systems Program (Project HAITI STARS). Transitional Bilingual Education 1991-92. OREA Report.
Project HAITT STARS (now in its fourth year) was designed to provide Haitian-, Spanish-, and Chinese-speaking high school students of limited English proficiency (who scored at or below the 40th percentile on the Language Assessment Battery) in three schools in Brooklyn and Queens, New York with instruction in the beginning through transitional levels of English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) and native language arts (NLA) as well as bilingual instruction in the content areas. The project was also to offer computer science classes, personal and career guidance, curriculum and staff development, and parental involvement activities. Of the 413 students who enrolled in the project, 336 participated in both semesters. The project was fully implemented and met its objectives for career counseling, staff and parental involvement, and NLA. The project also supplied data to evaluate objectives for grade retention/referral to special education or curriculum development. The project did not meet its objective for ESL nor did it provide data to evaluate objectives for gifted and talented programs and enrollment in postsecondary education institutions. Recommendations based on the projects' findings are included and data collection and analysis methods and instructional materials are appended. (JP)
