Chinese Bilingual Mathematics and Science Program. Community School District 2. Final Evaluation Report 1992-93. OER Report.
This report presents evaluative information concerning Project Math and Science, a New York City program that provided instruction in English as a second language (ESL), native language arts (NLA), and bilingual instruction in the content areas of mathematics and science. The project also provided teachers of participating students (630 mostly Chinese Speaking) with extensive staff-development workshops and activities, funds for attendance at conferences, and tuition reimbursement for teachers who took pertinent courses (including computer science). The project had an active parental component that encouraged parents' active participation in their children's education. Data show that the project met its three ESL objectives, two of three mathematics objectives, and one of two science objectives. The project also met its objective for career awareness, three staff-development objectives, and one of two parental-involvement objectives. It did not meet its objective for the development of higher-order thinking skills related to mathematics. Appendices contain a list of instructional materials, class schedules, and Likert Scales used in the evaluation. The report ends with conclusions and recommendations. (GLR)
