Staff Helping Attain Relevant Education (Project SHARE): Final Evaluation Report, 1992-93. OREA Report.
Project SHARE (Staff Helping Attain Relevant Education), a project funded by Title VII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, was in its third and final year of operation in 1992-93, in eight primary schools in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Manhattan (New York). The project served 141 limited English proficient students from low-income families in 1992-93 by providing English-as-a-Second Language (ESL) instruction using total physical response and multisensory and literature-based approaches and providing native language arts instruction (in Spanish) using language experience, whole language, and literature-based approaches. Project SHARE offered training to teachers, paraprofessionals, supervisors, administrators, and parents on issues related to multicultural assessment and bilingual instruction in special education. The project also provided workshops and training activities on consultation and assessment processes and on instructional techniques. Project SHARE provided parents with materials and information to enable them to assist their children at home and offered parents a variety of workshops. Project SHARE met all seven of its staff development objectives and all three of its parental involvement objectives. It did not meet its ESL objective or its objectives for the mastery of English, Spanish, and social skills. Appendices provide a list of instructional materials, a class schedule, and a staff questionnaire. (JDD)
