Inservice Training Helps Florida ESOL Teachers Raise Achievement of Students with Limited English
Ciminera, Jack
ERS Spectrum, v23 n3 p4-14 Sum 2005
This evaluation examines whether Project Bilingual/ESOL Special Training (BEST) achieved its goal of training qualified bilingual/ESOL education teachers through the appropriate endorsement programs. It also attempts to determine whether Project BEST had a positive impact on Limited English Proficiency (LEP) student achievement across the district during the five years of implementation. Specifically, the study answers these questions: How many teachers successfully completed the district inservice training program and the university courses offered through Project BEST from the 1999-2000 school year through the 2003-04 school years? Did the teachers benefit by completing the training offered through Project BEST? Additionally, did LEP students benefit from the teachers' BEST training? In short, the research indicates all parties did benefit. (Contains 8 tables and 2 figures.)
