Curriculum Options for Pupil Enrichment (Project COPE). Bilingual Special Alternative Instructional Program. Final Evaluation Report, 1992-93. OREA Report.
Curriculum Options for Pupil Enrichment (Project COPE) is a federally-funded program that served 192 limited-English-proficient students in one Brooklyn (New York) high school in 1992-93, its first year of operation. Students were native speakers of Russian, Italian, Arabic, Urdu, Korean, Vietnamese, Polish, Haitian, and Greek. They received instruction in English as a second language (ESL), native language arts (NLA), mathematics, science, social studies, computer science, secretarial studies, and industrial arts. Multicultural education, staff development, and parental involvement activities were also important program components. The program met its objectives in ESL, mathematics, science, social studies, computer science, secretarial studies, industrial arts technology, career awareness, dropout prevention, attendance, and parent involvement. It did not meet its staff development objective. The primary recommendation for program improvement is to make the staff development objective more realistic within the approved budget. (Author/MSE)
