Project Aprendizaje. Final Evaluation Report 1992-93.
This report provides evaluative information regarding the effectiveness of Project Aprendizaje, a New York City program that served 269 Spanish-speaking students of limited English proficiency (LEP). The project promoted parent and community involvement by sponsoring cultural events, such as a large Latin American festival. Students developed their writing skills and self-esteem by contributing articles in English and Spanish to a biannual newsletter. Participating students received instruction in English as a second language (ESL), native language arts (NLA), and the content-area subjects of mathematics, science, and social studies. Evaluation data show that Project Aprendizaje met its objectives for ESL, NLA, business education, attendance, suspension rate, dropout prevention, guidance, extracurricular activities, newsletter production, and parental involvement. It also met its content-area objectives except for science in the fall, and it met two of three staff-development objectives. No recommendations are presented. Appendices contain a list of instructional materials and class schedules. (GLR)
