Summary

The Teaching English as a Second Language Program was developed as a response to the needs of a multicultural population. It provides services geared to the individual needs of non-English speaking children in elementary and junior high schools. Children were seen for five 40 to 45 minute periods weekly in groups of 10 to 12. An audio-lingual method of instruction was used. Program evaluation was based on observations, interviews, and pre and post test results. The TESL program proved effective in nine out of ten grade levels and met the need for which it was intended. Strengths of the program were found to be the pull-out approach (children were taken from their regular classes for special services) and the small group/individualized instruction using audio-lingual teaching aids. The evaluation showed that the staff was enthusiastic and the administrative organization was capable. (MK)
