Enhancement of Learning through an Integrated Teaching Environment (Project ELITE) Special Alternative Instruction Program. Final Evaluation Report, 1992-93. OER Report.
Enhancement of Learning through an Integrated Teaching Environment (Project ELITE), a federally-funded bilingual education program, served 233 students of limited English proficiency in two high schools in Queens (New York) in its second year of operation. Participating students received instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL), mathematics, science, and social studies. The project also offered students occupational information, guidance, and an internship program. Staff development activities included individual training for new teachers, workshops, training sessions, monthly meetings, and conference attendance. Parent involvement activities included ESL instruction, multilingual education, parenting classes, and informational meetings held in English, Chinese, Korean, and Spanish. The project met all its objectives in ESL, content areas, dropout prevention, career orientation and counseling, attendance, staff development, and parent involvement. Recommendations for program improvement include grouping project students in a limited number of official classes to facilitate project-related communication, and stimulating parent attendance at ESL classes at one site.
