Augustin, Marc A.
The Alternative Basic Comprehension Program (Project A.B.C.) for bilingual high school students was a special alternative instructional program funded by Title VII for the third year at two high schools in the Bronx. In the year under review, Project A.B.C. served 260 students of limited English proficiency (LEP). Participating students received instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL) and the content area subjects of mathematics, science, and social studies. Teachers attended periodic staff meetings and were reimbursed for college level courses. The project had an active parental component that included ESL and educational trips. As in the previous year, the project met its ESL, staff development, occupational aspiration, attendance, dropout prevention, and parental involvement objectives. Curriculum development objectives were partially met, but the objective for student internships was not completed. Some specific suggestions are presented for program improvement. Six tables present evaluation findings. Appendixes list instructional materials, provide a schedule, and contain the student attitude questionnaire. (SLD)
