Prospects, the congressionally mandated study of educational growth and opportunity : first year report on language minority and limited English proficient students by Marc Moss( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents descriptive findings from the Language Minority/Limited English Proficiency Student Supplement of "Prospects," a six-year longitudinal evaluation concerning the impact of federal Chapter 1 programs. These programs provide supplemental instruction to low-achieving elementary and secondary school students in low-income schools. Instructional areas supported by Chapter 1 include: reading, mathematics, language arts, English-as-a-Second Language (esl), and bilingual education. Survey and achievement data were collected from a nationally representative sample of three student cohorts beginning in grades 1, 3, and 7. The report presents data from the first two years of data collection (1991 and 1992) for two of the cohorts (grades 1 and 3), including extensive demographic information, student out-of-school behaviors and home support, student academic performance as measured by standardized tests, teacher judgment, and self-report, school attendance and grade retention patterns, and the kind, quality, and extent of educational services provided to lep students. Findings show that lep students who attend public school are particularly disadvantaged. They come from poor families and live in urban communities with high concentrations of poverty. Their parents have especially low levels of educational attainment, are often unemployed, have only limited proficiency in English, and rarely speak English at home. Despite the importance of early educational intervention, the parents of lep students are less likely than other parents to send their children to kindergarten. It is concluded that Chapter 1 policies should be particularly sensitive to the needs of low-achieving lep students, who are more likely to be in low-income schools or schools without adequate services, and who may have difficulty taking standardized tests in English. In addition, the need for more staff training to assist this population is highlighted. (Mse)
Promising practices : a teacher resource (grades K-3)( Book )

5 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part of a project to help teachers respond to the challenge of teaching content subjects to a variety of limited-English-proficient (lep) learners, this report presents the recommendations of a group of master teachers who first identified promising practices for educating minority language students and then supplemented these by selecting learning activities that exemplify the ways in which the practices can be used successfully in the lep classroom. The 29 promising practices are grouped under four headings: planning; classroom management; teaching procedures; and evaluation. Practices include emphasizing advance preparation, providing additional time for teaching vocabulary; creating opportunities for student-student interaction, instituting a reward system, encouraging parent-student activities, contextualizing instructional language, providing a hierarchy of questioning techniques, building self-esteem, and providing positive reinforcement and feedback. Sample lesson plans are given for each category, and a lesson evaluation checklist is provided that summarizes the 29 practices. A subject index is also included for the following areas: art, health, language arts, math, music, science, and social studies. Contains 11 references. (Lb)
