Rivera, Natasha F.; Klinger, Carrie
This report provides evaluative information concerning Project HOPE (Helpful Opportunities for Public Enrichment) in New York City. This project served 250 Spanish-speaking students and 109 Chinese-speaking students who scored at or below the 40th percentile on the Language Assessment Battery and were thus categorized as being of limited English proficiency. It provided students with instruction in English as a second language (ESL), native language arts (NLA), and the content areas. The project also offered career counseling. The project provided development opportunities to teachers of participating students as well as to some mainstream teachers. Teachers of project students team-taught with the project's resource specialists, who acted as facilitators for the project. Parents of participating students had the opportunity to participate in field trips and other activities, including workshops. Data show that the project met its objectives for ESL, Chinese NLA, mathematics, attendance, advisement, parental involvement, and curriculum development. The project met its Spanish NLA objective at one site only. Appendices contain a list of instructional materials and class schedules. (GLR)
