Scholastic Achievement through Bilingual Education and Multicultural Activities Seminars (Project SABE MAS). Final Evaluation Report. 1992-93. OER Report.
This report presents an evaluation of Scholastic Achievement through Bilingual Education and Multicultural Activities Seminars (Project SABE MAS), an Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title VII-funded project in its third year of operation at Theodore Roosevelt High School in the Bronx (New York). Project SABE MAS served 294 students, 267 of whom were of limited English proficiency (LEP) and 27 of whom were English proficient. Participating LEP students received structured English instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL) and native language arts (NLA), and bilingual instruction in the content areas of mathematics, science, and social studies. The project was fully implemented at the school and met its objectives for NLA, the content areas, cultural heritage, community awareness, career advisement, attendance, staff development, curriculum development, and parent involvement. The project failed to meet its objective for ESL. Recommendations for program improvement are included. Three appendixes provide lists of instructional materials used in the program and class schedules, along with a copy of a multicultural questionnaire. (MDM)
