Kester, Donald L.; Plakos, John; Santos, Will
The report details the third-year evaluation of a transitional bilingual education project at Chester W. Nimitz Middle School in Huntington Park, California. The Family/School Partnership Project is designed to assist limited English proficient students in mastering English skills to transition to regular classroom activities by integrating current language research, the state curriculum framework, and computer technology in a nonthreatening learning environment. The instructional program focuses on four areas: English and native language proficiency; mathematics, science, and social science; cultural heritage education; and self-esteem building. The report outlines specific objectives in each of these areas and statistical data on the program's success in meeting them. Supporting documentation, including samples of student work, is appended.
