Project CHAMP, 1985-1986. OEA Evaluation Report.

The Chinese Achievement and Mastery program, Project CHAMP, was a bilingual (Chinese/English) project offered at three high schools in Manhattan. The major goals were to enable Chinese students of limited English proficiency (LEP) to learn English and to master content in mathematics, science, global history, computer mathematics, and native language arts (Chinese) courses. Another goal was to achieve a high attendance rate for project students at the participating schools. An intensive literacy component was offered at the Seward Park High School site to those students who were functionally illiterate in their native languages and who lacked basic academic skills. The major objectives of this component were: (1) to develop students' ability to read and write fluently in their native language; (2) to master basic elements of reading, writing and speaking in English; (3) to develop the students' study skills and habits as a foundation for future academic work; and (4) to foster students' understanding of American classroom procedures. This program evaluation contains the following: (1) a description of Project CHAMP; (2) information on students characteristics; (3) evaluation findings; and (4) conclusions and recommendations. Included are appendices listing the results of student tests and the passing rates for content areas by site. (PS)
