Exemplary Capacity Building Program of Transitional Bilingual Education, Community School District 3. Final Evaluation Report, 1992-93. OREA Report.
The Exemplary Capacity Building Program of Transitional Bilingual Education was a federally funded program serving 266 limited-English-speaking, Spanish-speaking students in two Manhattan (New York) elementary schools. Participating students received instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL), native language arts (NLA), and content areas. Some classes used a dual-language approach to classroom instruction. Other program components included multicultural education, development opportunities for program staff, and parent involvement activities. The project met one of three objectives for staff development and one of two for parent involvement. Attainment of the stated objectives for ESL, NLA, the content areas, and the third staff development could not be assessed due to lack of information. No specific recommendations were made for program improvement. The final report offers details of other specific program aspects, activities, achievements, and findings. (MSE)
