Transitional Bilingual Education Project. Community School District 13. Final Evaluation Report, 1992-93. OER Report.
This report presents an evaluation of the Transitional Bilingual Education Project (TBEP), an Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title VII-funded project in its third year of operation at P.S. 9 and P.S. 133 in Brooklyn, New York. The project served 128 limited English proficient students, focusing on the provision of structured English and native language instruction to allow each child to achieve competence in English while facilitating progress in content areas. The project emphasized the teaching of English as a Second Language (ESL) and the use of computers. It also provided staff development and parent workshops. TBEP met it content area, staff development, and parental involvement objectives. The project did not meet its objectives for ESL or development of English language skills through computer-assisted instruction. The project partially met its objective for native language arts, meeting it at P.S. 9 but not at P.S. 133. Three appendixes include a list of instructional materials used, class schedules, and a staff survey questionnaire. (MDM)
